The Southern Foodways Alliance documents, studies, and explores the diverse food cultures of the changing American South.

Based at the University of Mississippi’s Center for the Study of Southern Culture, we share oral histories, produce films and podcasts, publish great writing, sponsor scholarship, mentor students, and stage events that serve as progressive and inclusive catalysts for the greater South.

Donations from generous individuals, foundations, and companies fund our good work.
