Support Your Community

This is our mantra at True South, no made up slogans or stories – we focus on authenticity in everything we do from our recipes, loving food preparation, and the community we serve. Since 1996 guests have shelled out over $1.2M in pocket change for local charities.

It all started as my husband and I were sittin' on our porch one day sippin' iced tea. Larry alluded as to how we were giving away 36,000 pounds of peanuts each year… and maybe our guests would get so excited about this generosity (in as much as a bag of peanuts cost $10 at the ball game) that they would want to share in our insanity.

So we decided to ask you if you would donate a quarter, or just any ol' pocket change, while you eat all the peanuts your heart desires. Of course, even if you don't choose to make the donation, we insist you eat all the peanuts anyhow. It helps drive-up the price of peanut stock, and you know we Carter's love that. 

Companies have donated money, personal checks have been written, and many heroes have emerged. Your generosity has overwhelmed us and inspired us to continue. Thank you for sharing your abundance…it will surely grow!
