Lots of us know that High Cotton
serves great food, but the restaurant is also a good neighbor.
High Cotton is the South Carolina winner of the 2013 Restaurant Neighbor Award
given by the National Restaurant Association
According to its blog
, the restaurant donates to the Neighborhood House
of Charleston, the Lowcountry Food Bank
and Communities in Schools
of Charleston. Also, General Manager Jill Maynard established a scholarship at the Culinary Institute of Charleston at Trident Technical College
in memory of her late husband.
State restaurant associations select a state winner, and those winners compete for four national awards. The National Restaurant Association says that nine out of 10 restaurants are involved in some type of community service, and the award program
was created to recognize restaurants that work to improve the quality of life in the community.
High Cotton, both the Charleston and Greenville locations
, are Maverick Southern Kitchen
restaurants. The company also owns Slightly North of Broad
in Charleston, Old Village Post House
in Mount Pleasant and Charleston Cooks!
in Charleston, Columbia and Greenville.
