There are lots of good reasons to eat locally grown and produced food:

  • It helps support the local economy; local businesses and food produced locally keeps the money in the local economy
  • It’s better for your health as the foods require less processing and use of chemical preservatives, pesticides and pollutants; better for you and for the environment
  • Buying fresh and organic food and products in your area increases relationships with local farmers and businesses
  • Less resources are required in packaging and transportation, reducing the carbon impact
  • The food tastes better!
