A few centuries ago, the food most people ate typically came from their backyard, or that of a neighbor, or local farmer. Today, food travels across city and often comes from abroad.

 

Local food has become more of a commodity rather than the norm. But with the help of the food justice movement, the food sovereignty movement, the environmental movement, and others, we’re more aware of the benefits and importance of eating local food which is grown and harvested close to where we live.

 

Choosing some local produce, eggs, dairy, meat, and more can help support local farmers, optimize taste, and nutrition, and decrease our carbon footprint.
