Local Foods

Local foods are produced…locally. What this means to you and the environment is better health.

Here’s why.

The average American meal typically travels between 1,500 and 4,000 KM. That’s a 25% increase from 1980 alone. All of this road-tripping food uses 17 times more petroleum products and produces more carbon dioxide emissions compared to a meal made from local foods.

Travelling isn’t a good thing when it comes to nutrition and taste, either. Time in transit not only reduces fresh flavor, but also the water-soluble vitamins, like vitamin C.
