WE BELIEVE FOOD SHOULD BE
Our food should be tasty, seasonal, local, fresh and wholesome.
Our food should be affordable, while respecting the dignity of labor from field to fork.
Our food should nourish a healthful lifestyle and be produced in ways that preserve biodiversity, sustain the environment and ensure animal welfare.
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.
