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.

While it's snowing in Denver, we're day dreaming of warmer days this summer when Slow Food Nations 2018 will return.
Here's a throwback to the piece that Simran Preeti Sethi produced for KCRW on the inaugural Slow Foods Nations last year.

A bumper sticker spotted in Montana reads, "No barley, no beer." It's a reminder that Montana's barley farmers are struggling. Barley is an unforgiving crop that needs a precise recipe of water and sunshine to thrive — too much of either will cause it to wither and die. And amid a changing climate and unpredictable seasons, that's exactly what's happening.

Food and climate reporter Ari LeVaux joins Here & Now to talk about his recent article on the issue, reported in collaboration with The Weather Channel and the Food & Environment Reporting Network.

Slow Food USA shared Hands of the Makers's video.5 days ago
Hands of the Makers documents the beauty, the art and the knowledge of artisans around the world, in an effort to preserve their traditions, showcase the uniqueness of their work and inspire others.

Their second story is focused on the work of cheesemaker Ales Winkler, who left Ljubljana, Slovenia, with his family 10 years ago to move to Istria, Croatia, and start producing goat cheese from scratch.

Hands of the Makers
We are very proud to present the 2 episode of Hands of the Makers! Kumparička Farm, originally built in the 14th century, is located on the east coast of the Istrian peninsula in Croatia, between Mutvoran and Krnica. Ales and his family completely renovated it when they moved from Ljubljana 10 years ago, turning their lives upside down and learning cheese production from scratch. All year round their 250+ goats graze on 200 hectares of Istrian macchia, covered with over 180 different plants and aromatic herbs, the reason for the incredible flavour combinations of their goat cheeses. Kumparička is an ode to Istria, seamlessly blending traditional craftsmanship with innovation and a profound respect for nature. #handsofthemakers

Drought is forcing Kenya's indigenous pastoral communities to seek food and water inside the country's extensive national parks, bringing them into direct conflict with the government.

The rural and natural are disappearing from our lives and everything that lies outside the city is swallowed up and transformed to answer to the city’s needs. But could we rethink the urban fabric and the metropolitan area, starting from a recovery of that lost rurality? Could we imagine and design our cities in a way that keeps "modernity" more aligned with humanity? #SlowCities
