Food

Why Eat Local?

Eating local food reduces greenhouse gas emissions

• Produce found in grocery stores travels an average of 2404 km while local food travels an average of 90km.

Local food tastes better and is more nutritious

• The local food has not travelled as far and therefore is fresher, and studies have shown that nutrient content is significantly higher in locally sourced produce.

Buying from local producers promotes a healthy economy

• When you but local food you support the local farmers.

• This supports local growth and employment in that area

• It increases stability of the farms
