From Field to Fork: Eat Local

From the field to your fork, an average dinner travels 1,700 miles.
But your food doesn’t have to travel halfway around the planet, burning up fuel along the way.
“Local food is often safer, too,” says the Center for a New American Dream (CNAD). It doesn’t need to be grown with pesticides either.
You can make a choice to eat locally grown organic food. When you buy from local farmers, your dollars stay within your community and support local farms.
When you choose organic, you are investing in healthy food and a clean environment.
City Farm’s General Manager, Ryan Finch says “Eating local is an idea, a way of living and a way of eating. It is a global, grassroots movement with thousands of members around the world that links the pleasure of food with a commitment to community and the environment.”
