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.

Michael Recktenwald from the North Sea island of Langeoog is using sustainable measures at Restaurant Seekrug in order to initiate sustainable consumption and to protect the climate. He only uses regional products within a radius of 50 km, and customers get a discount when they bring in their own mug, an incentive to minimize the use of packaging and containers.

"The climate represents the central challenge of mankind. A question determining our destiny as a species." –German Chancellor Angela Merkel at #COP23.

So who is going to save the only planet we have? Raise your fork against climate change with us!

We intend to support those who produce our food with minimal impact on the environment and the climate and to help everyone to choose a more sustainable way of eating, as a fundamental paradigm shift in the production, distribution and consumption patterns of the food system is an integral part of any real solution to the question.

Luka Lübke is another German member of the Slow Food Chef Alliance who has pledged to "Cook Up a Better Future" in her efforts to adopt climate protection practices in her kitchen. She focuses on the reduction of food waste, and her menu changes every day, based on what's seasonal and available. When she uses meat, she knows where the meat is coming form, how the animals grew up and she makes sure to use them from nose to tail.

The latest Slow Food Presidium has been set up in Mexico to protect the Caribbean Spiny Lobster. The cooperatives involved in the Presidium have adopted sustainable and selective fishing techniques and this has contributed to the preservation of this species and the health of the sea. The fishers have abandoned fishing with hooks and nets, and returned to using snares and hoop nets, thus allowing egg-bearing females and young animals to go free.

After a "meatless" Monday, what about Tuesday? Can "slow" and humane husbandry, practiced along with regenerative agriculture, actually help mitigate climate change?

As world governments lose momentum on the climate, deflated by the US withdrawal from the Paris agreement and the non-committal stance of China, the urgency of the situation only increases. It is imperative that we effect change in our everyday lives and put pressure on our governments to take decisive action, today. #COP23 #MenuForChange #SlowFood

A good first step by the World Health Organization (WHO), but at this stage we need much more than just guidelines. The abuse of antibiotics in the meat industry and the consequences for human health are just one of the many reasons that we must abandon this cruel and unsustainable production system once and for all.
