Locally Grown Food
Fresh and Healthy
The good news is that we don’t have to buy food that
comes from thousands of miles away or needs so much packaging!
If we buy local food, we can help protect the environment.
Because locally grown food doesn’t need to be transported
as far, less pollution is created. And since the food isn’t
being shipped thousands of miles, it doesn’t need as
much packaging. Using less packaging means we can save more
trees and help protect nature. Also, when we use less packaging,
we create less garbage that ends up at the landfill.
