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.

"Make no mistake: climate change here is real, and it is affecting us now." – Tumal Orto Galdibe, a pastoralist from the Chalbi Desert in northern Kenya

Slow Food is promoting the Menu For Change campaign to tell the world how climate change is affecting small-scale farmers and food producers and what we are doing to support them. We are getting close to our goal – Will you take a minute to make a gift? Your support helps people connect their food choices to climate change around the world. http://donate.slowfood.com/en/

As much as 50% of the land currently used to grow coffee may be unfit for purpose by 2050. What’s happening in Guatemala is, in many ways, a harbinger of what’s to come throughout the world.

"Eating is an intimate and immediate way to respond to climate challenges. With every bite we take, we have an opportunity to explore how eating can be a restorative act and how our food system can be a delicious way to mitigate climate change.

From highlighting the plight of farm workers to tackling food waste, Slow Food recognizes—and celebrates—the centrality of food both on and beyond the plate. Thanks for being part of the movement!"
– Simran Preeti Sethi

Good news from Brazil! The State of Santa Catarina has approved a new law legalizing raw milk cheese, becoming the second state in the country to do so. Next step: federal recognition of the country's rich yet undervalued dairy heritage!

Cook Up A Better Future is the second challenge of the Menu For Change campaign, starting from November 6.

Take up the challenge, get active and fight climate change in the kitchen – that means choosing good, clean and fair ingredients, drastically reducing your consumption of meat, and rejecting any meat that has been raised by intensive farming, choosing mackerel, anchovies or sardines instead of cod, tuna or salmon, and saying no to all farmed fish. It means eating more legumes, and of course, seasonal fruit and vegetables that haven’t been shipped across continents.

Join Slow Food, organize an event with a climate-friendly menu, and share your photos and videos with us using the hashtags #MenuForChange #SlowFood

Paolo Di Croce, General Secretary of Slow Food International, explains how we use the money we are raising as part of #MenuForChange.

Did you know that while 85% of Canadian seafood is exported, up to 93% of the seafood available to Canadians is imported? The situation makes no sense economically or ecologically! Slow Fish Canada is joining forces with fishers, harvesters and purveyors of Canadian seafood from coast to coast to tell the federal government that they should be able to have access to our own wild food resources!

“The Commission is trying to dress up its rejection of the #StopGlyphosate initiative with vague transparency proposals. Providing access to the data on toxic pesticides won’t make them any less dangerous. As long as the Commission leaves the testing of chemicals in the hands of the manufacturers, it will continue to lose the trust of citizens. We will continue to fight for meaningful measures to reduce pesticide use across the EU and for truly independent pesticide assessments" said David Schwartz of WeMove.EU.
