Launching August 2nd through September 19th

We're excited to announce our Second Annual Salad Project; a celebration of the season & an exciting collaboration with local inspirations! Each week we will highlight a local tastemaker’s signature salad, on our menu at Basic Kitchen, benefitting Green Heart and with lots of festivities in between!

Green Heart is a local non-profit working to educate Charleston youth through experiential learning; enhancing their education with school gardens, building healthy eating habits and building community. Net proceeds from the sales of each salad will go towards Green Heart’s Back to School Initiative.
