The Kalamazoo Gazette recently ran an editorial about the local food movement. It begins as follows:
"Whether you're interested in healthy eating, the health of the region's economy or the health of farm animals, it seems the "local food" movement is a good prescription."
The article discusses the ways in which buying locally grown food is beneficial for health, economic, and environmental reasons.
Then head on over to the West Michigan Co-Op for some "window shopping" of local food options here in West Michigan. Get your shopping list ready, because the Co-Op's next shopping cycle begins on July 4 and runs through July 10.
