South Carolina Read Eat Grow is a State Library initiative that encourages food literacy and learning. In 2018 the South Carolina State Library began a statewide food literacy initiative called SC Read Eat Grow. This project was inspired by the Culinary Literacy Center of the Free Library of Philadelphia and their work with food programs of all types. As a state we struggle with high rates of heart disease and obesity, while at the same time we have a large number of children experiencing food insecurity. Although a small number of our public libraries provide programs around a community garden or minimal cooking such as microwaves and blenders, none of the public libraries in South Carolina are currently offering any programs that connected families over food, or addressed food justice, food inequity, or introduces new cultures through the common ground of cooking together. This session will cover the details of how the South Carolina State Library's Read Eat Grow initiative is encouraging culinary literacy and programming throughout the state and making libraries spaces to read, eat, and grow.
