A Donor Plug for Local Foods Connection January 31, 2007

Few would argue that people should not eat food that is healthy for our bodies and the environment. Unfortunately, low-cost food is usually higher in fat and chemicals, mass-produced and shipped long distances. Despite organic food becoming more widespread, it is definitely not yet affordable for many households. As well, the very growth of organic food market is increasing corporate interest and adding pressure to local farmers. We think it is fantastic that Local Foods Connection offers a way for families to not only receive healthy organic food, but also educational opportunites and connections and support of area farmers. It’s been great to watch the organization expand to include more households each year and more opportunities such as  the Thanksgiving turkey distribution. As a family, we are pleased to support Local Foods Connection. Kudos to Laura for spearheading such a valuable contribution to our community.  — Ken, Andrea, Trevor & Aaron Clinkenbeard
