How To Make More Local Food Choices
Open your pantry, open your fridge: Where does the food you’re looking at come from? Pull out a piece of produce—there are likely stickers on each piece that indicates where it’s from. Can you calculate the distance? Have you thought about what it takes to get it to you?
If you’re like most people, the answer is probably no. We aren’t connected to our food, and we’ve lost the notion of understanding where it comes from or even how it’s grown. But knowing more about your food and knowing how you can maximize the local connection you have to what you eat is important. Not only does eating locally help to minimize your use of fossil fuels to transport food, but eating locally helps to support the local economy.
What do you know about your food sources, and how can you change your eating habits? This graphic has some ideas.
