About the Event
In our 10th year, we’ve gone a bit nostalgic. Over the past 10 years, we’ve created more than just amazing food, drink and music – we’ve fostered a family of people that take Southern food and culture just as seriously as we do, and who understand that Southern fare is rooted in much, much more than just grits and sweet tea. (Although we love those both dearly). Through Music to Your Mouth, we bring together some of the biggest names in Southern food, drink and music — and pick up some newcomers along the way – to explore old recipes, new traditions, and stories that make the South so special. We then wash it all down with libations from vintners, distillers and brewers who hone their craft and pair their punch with stories of discovery.

Since 1992, Second Helpings has “rescued” more than five million pounds of food destined for landfills and given it to agencies that feed the disadvantaged in Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton Counties. More than 160 volunteers from Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Sun City and Beaufort gather perishable goods daily from local restaurants, caterers, resorts and grocery stores and deliver the food to approximately 65 local non-profit agencies. To date, Music to Your Mouth has contributed more than $115,000 to Second Helpings to help feed more than 750,000 local residents from Beaufort, Jasper and Hampton counties in Southeastern South Carolina.
