By eating locally, you not only gain access to fresher food, but also reduce your “carbon footprint.” Because the spinach, chicken, or carrots being forklifted to your eager lips didn’t travel thousands of miles by boat, plane, or truck, your satisfying lunch is also sustainable. Furthermore, by buying within the community, you keep your money from being outsourced–helping to support organizations and people close to you.
