What Can I Do?

You have tremendous power to influence your local food economy simply through your shopping practices.  Here are a few simple ways that you can support local foods and build wealth in your immediate community:

  • Ask.  Talking to your local food vendors, be they school or workplace cafeterias, grocers, or restauranteurs, lets them know that there is a demand for local food among their customers.
  • Inform.  Find out what local foods are in season.  Ask your local vendors if they are members of the Farm Food Collaborative, a food hub specializing in local products.  You can learn more about the Farm Food Collaborative and its partners by clicking here.
  • Buy.  Whenever possible, buy local products that meet your needs.  Even small purchases can have a great impact!
