Do you look for local food in your favorite grocery store, or when you go out to eat? There is a growing awareness of the benefits to eating locally, and greater demand for food produced within our own foodshed. Consumers may not realize just how much food is readily available. Earlier this year, CFAC conducted a study of area restaurants and learned that many of them actually purchase locally-grown food, they just haven’t found a great mechanism for marketing it. That is why CFAC is partnering with the Mission Mountain Food Enterprise Center to showcase just what is available, through a Western MT Choose Local Campaign.
Watch for the Choose Local logo and show your support of area farmers by purchasing the local option. How you spend your money matters. Choose Local every time! You will be helping our local economy and building the community!
