So for breakfast this morning I had eggs from our chickens, okra from our next door neighbor, and the most beautiful figs from a patient’s yard. All of these amazing and vital foods came from very local sources of nourishment. I just wanted to remind everyone how lucky we are to have access to fresh, organic and local food sources. There was a quote in the paper today that put some real numbers to the thought of eating local.
“If every area household spent just $10 a week on local foods, it would generate $384.2 million annually in southeast Virginia and $1.65 billion statewide.”
Talk about supporting your community! These numbers shocked me, and our household spends way more locally than just$10 a week. So the next time you spend your hard earned money on nourishment, make it good, clean, local food.
