THE FUTURE OF FOOD IS THE FUTURE OF THE PLANET

If you care about local farmers, ranchers, fishers, animal welfare, the joy of a shared meal, preserving food culture, protecting the environment or avoiding GMOs

We have a place for you at our table.

WE BELIEVE FOOD SHOULD BE

GOOD

Our food should be tasty, seasonal, local, fresh and wholesome.

FAIR

Our food should be affordable, while respecting the dignity of labor from field to fork.

CLEAN

Our food should nourish a healthful lifestyle and be produced in ways that preserve biodiversity, sustain the environment and ensure animal welfare.

FOR ALL

Good, clean and fair food should be accessible to all and celebrate the diverse cultures, traditions and nations that reside in the USA.

WHO WE ARE

Slow Food Charleston is part of the global Slow Food network of over 100,000 members in more than 150 countries. Our mission as an international grassroots membership organization, and 501(c)3, is Good, Clean, and Fair food for all.

A better, cleaner and more fair world begins with what we put on our plates – and our daily choices determine the future of the environment, economy and society.

Through a vast volunteer network of local chapters, youth and food communities, we link the pleasures of the table with a commitment to protect the community, culture, knowledge and environment that make this pleasure possible.

The philosophy of our Slow Meat campaign can be summed up with one simple slogan: eat less meat, of better quality. The commercial meat industry has a completely opposing view that displays a blatant disregard for consumer, animal and farmer well-being, and is destroying the environment in the process.

In this article, Stefano Liberti, author and friend of Slow Food, explores one of the enormous, global problems of industrialized meat production, namely the vast overpopulation of animals being raised for us to eat: https://www.slowfood.com/industrial-meat-devouring-planet/

Have you heard? Carlo Petrini, Slow Food president and founder, is speaking at Slow Food Nations in Denver this July!

Meet and hear Carlo Petrini at the Food and Freedom event where he explores the promise of food sovereignty with Barry C. Lynn. In an age of globalization and transnational capital flows, how are people all over the world taking ownership over their local food systems? How are we balancing food with freedom?

The Waddenzee, a UNESCO World Heritage site & the largest unbroken system of intertidal sand and mud flats in the world, is also home to Barbara Rodenburg-Geertsema, who has dedicated her life to the sea as a fisher, a biologist and as a chef. Barbara takes us through her journey from joining Slow Food to her experiences at the Wadden Sea, after serving us with some delightful wild oysters & shore crabs from the Slow Food Presidium of Wadden Sea Traditional Fishers at the Chef’s Alliance Kitchen, Slow Fish 2017.

Our projects are tools to promote a model of agriculture that is based on local biodiversity and respect for the land and the local culture in harmony with the environment and which aims to provide food sovereignty and access to good, clean and fair food for all communities. What have we achieved so far? #WorldBiodiversityDay

Every opportunity to buy local fruit, vegetables or meat from rare breeds or endangered varieties is an opportunity to protect biodiversity, and the future of our planet. Choose biodiversity, save the planet, join Slow Food! #WorldBiodiversityDay

"Food is history, memory, and identity. It feeds many hungers. Diversity, on every level, increases our capacity to respond to challenges." - Simran Preeti Sethi.

Today is #WorldBiodiversityDay, and it's important we remember that biodiversity isn't just endangered wild animals, but plants and domesticated animal breeds too. It's all precious and irreplaceable, and we must do all we can save it.

It’s hard to describe the beauty of the Eat-In. The shared joy, the instant connections, the wealth of flavors. A regular part of the program at Slow Food events since 2010, the Eat-In is organized by students of the UNISG - Università degli Studi di Scienze Gastronomiche in open, public spaces, where food that would otherwise have gone to waste is transformed into a delicious buffet. Perhaps no other event embodies the Slow Food philosophy so vividly, and it was the perfect way to close out Slow Fish 2017.

This edition of Slow Fish has seen the participation of both the scientific community and the fishers of the Terra Madre network, both from Italy and abroad: over 500 people working together with 50 volunteers, and food communities from 15 different countries spanning every continent, from Finland to Uganda and from Ecuador to Australia, our 80 delegates are the living proof that small-scale sustainable fishing can work.
