Social Responsibility

The Sustainable Seafood Initiative

As proud supporters of this initiative, we are committed to only serving seafood that it is captured in a way that doesn’t risk the future of the fishery. This is actually better for everyone. When a species is “overfished”, it leads to a number of problems for the fish and the fisher. First, there are fewer fish. This makes them harder to capture and, with fewer parents, there will be fewer offspring. Second, the fish tend to get smaller. They mature at a smaller size and at a younger age. Smaller fish produce fewer offspring. A fishery that exhibits these characteristics become less profitable, which eventually has a far-reaching economic impact: fishers, boat manufacturers, hotels and restaurants can all suffer. Most importantly, mindfulness toward sustainability helps to ensure the continuation of each species.

The South Carolina Aquarium, South Carolina Seafood Alliance, South Carolina Coastal Conservation League, University of South Carolina, Baruch Institute, and the South Carolina Sea Grant has teamed up to promote sustainable seafood in the Charleston area. The goal of the program is to promote wise seafood choices and the consumption of environmentally-friendly, locally captured seafood.

Fresh on the Menu

The Holy City Hospitality family have partnered with the Certified South Carolina Grown Initiative. As supporting members if the Fresh on the Menu program, we promise to continue our commitment to source locally grown products, and support the agricultural community of our region.

Fresh on the Menu is one of several programs developed as part of the Certified South Carolina Grown initiative, a cooperative effort among producers, processors, wholesalers, retailers and the South Carolina Department of Agriculture (SCDA) to brand and promote South Carolina products. The goal is for consumers to be able to easily identify, find and buy South Carolina products.
