we have mentioned them before, but if you do not yet know the Southern Foodways Alliance, allow us to introduce you:
for over ten years the oxford, mississippi-based nonprofit has promoted the South through its diverse food cultures.
not only are they working to preserve & promote our foodways, but the SFA has created a culture of their own through their gatherings and events that occur all over the country...
and the rest of the SFA support system (its staff, members, friends) are some of the nicest folks you will meet.
recently, we read their 'values' page from their website and wanted to share the link here, as it shares many wisdoms: SFA mission & values
and if you feel compelled, please join with them.
