The “Eat Local” Movement

The American meal travels an average of 2,000 miles from farm to plate, according to a recent study by the Worldwatch Institute.

This grossly inefficient food supply system has fostered unhealthy expectations – the attitude that any food should be available any time of year and at a unrealistically low cost.

In an effort to close the gap between our forks and our fields, chefs, food activists and growing numbers of regular consumers - are making a commitment to “Eat Local.”

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental News Network, as we hear from three of this movement’s leaders and hear how organic, seasonal and local food decisions affect their lives.
