The Southern Foodways Alliance is humbled and honored to announce we have been chosen as a recipient of a 2009 Travel + Leisure Global Vision Award. "Introduced in 2005, the Awards recognize the outstanding efforts of individuals and organizations that are working to preserve the world's natural and man-made treasures." Fellow honorees this year include the Museum of Islamic Art and the Rainforest Alliance, among others.

We're thrilled to be recognized for fulfilling our mission of documenting, studying, and celebrating the diverse food cultures of the changing American South. We'd love T+L to come on down and enjoy a hot tamale, bbq sandwich, or plate of fried pickles--we know just the place(s).

Look for this SFA shout out in the November issue of Travel + Leisure.
