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.

We are looking for a sunny patch to park our garden trailer. After years in storage it is time to bring back our mobile garden! Do you have a place we can park with water access? This hands-on learning tool will be taken on the road for Tiny Tastemaker activities and will be in and out of use throughout the year: to start and sell (Ark of Taste) seedlings, host educational pop-ups, and get dirty with the kids of Charleston. If you want to help or have any ideas, send us a message or email tinytastemakerschs@gmail.com

Check out a new project from a Slow Food intern!

Julia Franchi Scarselli's big idea: through Libellula, you can adopt an olive tree and get traditionally made olive oil straight from Italian producers.

“People are listening to Heritage to hear the authentic voices of people who are working in the field and people who won’t be featured in mainstream media or who won’t be in a lifestyle publication. But they’re the people who are actually hands-on, making our food, and creating change in the food system. That’s who we want to hear from, that’s who our audience wants to hear from. I think anyone can tell a story.” Caity Moseman Wadler, of the Heritage Radio Network, (inspired by Slow Food!), tells it like it is.

Slow Food regards this first important step forward as necessary and welcomes it with the utmost satisfaction. But this is just the beginning: the debate is still open on what might be the most feasible and economically sustainable alternatives to cage farming.

We don't want glyphosate in our fields and in our food. It's a billion dollar business that destroys biodiversity. If we can gather a million signatures from at least seven countries across Europe, we can make sure the substance is banned! #StopGlyphosate

Representatives of EU countries should once and for all come to terms with the fact that citizens do not want GMOs in Europe, stop arguing about their possible authorization and focus instead on solving the real challenges of the European food system: the abandonment of the countryside, the disappearance of numerous farms, the loss of food biodiversity in fields and on our tables, the pollution of water, air and soil caused by industrial agriculture, and so on. #NoGMO

The damage caused by pesticides has been proved scientifically: insecticides, herbicides and fungicides pollute the environment, compromise our health, destabilize the ecosystem and reduce biodiversity. Yet to guarantee high yields, a large part of the world continues to use them intensively. Alternatives, but it can’t be boiled down simply to agricultural practices. A radical change both in the system of food production and consumption is necessary. Pesticide Action Week 20-30th March
