Local foods are produced...locally. What this means to you and the environment is better health.

Here's why.

The average American meal typically travels between 1,500 and 4,000 KM. That's a 25% increase from 1980 alone. All of this road-tripping food uses 17 times more petroleum products and produces more carbon dioxide emissions compared to a meal made from local foods.

Travelling isn't a good thing when it comes to nutrition and taste, either. Time in transit not only reduces fresh flavor, but also the water-soluble vitamins, like vitamin C.
