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.

Historically, women have played key roles in the saving of seeds for future generations, and now they’re working towards revitalizing heirloom flours in the grain and baking industries. Their work has uncovered varieties of flavors for breads that are not only good for your body but also for the planet!

Looking to incorporate heritage grains into your home kitchen? Check out The Whole Grain Experience at Slow Food Nations 2018 where we’ll explore various grains in sprouting, cooking and baking to boost flavor and nutrition at breakfast, lunch and dinner: https://slowfoodnations.org/event/whole-grain-experience/

Thanks to bees and pollinating insects, 4000 wild plants and more than 80% of cultivated species in Europe continue to exist.
They are integral for the survival of many ecosystems.

And this year Terra Madre Salone del Gusto 2018 - Food For Change will reserve an area to talk about just how important these insects are! There will be an interactive exhibit, and forums to explore how pollinators and insects support #FoodForChange.
