Local Foods Week
Local Foods Week 2016
Ohio Local Foods Week from August 7th – 13th
Although “locally grown” food does not have one definition, many people are considering where their food was grown or raised and make the effort to develop personal connections with growers and producers to find the freshest, safest and most local food.
Through the Education/Awareness Task Force, the Nortwest Ohio Food Council has celebrated Local Foods Week since 2012. Past celebrations have included urban agriculture tours, local food lessons, farmers markets promotions, and Food Truck Friday.
Education/Awareness Task Force meets once a month, contact Lee Richter, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
