The food on your plate is not isolated. It comes from somewhere and during the process of having prepare it, chances are there will be some scraps.

Let’s think about it: every bite we take is not just nourishment. It’s gratefulness, and reverence. That’s why it matters where it comes from and how it impacts not just our health, but the health of our environment. Also, every food we choose to put on or plate can boost the health of our local economy. Sourcing local seasonal food is what keeps communities well nourished and connected to the land.

And all that comes with immense health benefits for you and I.
