Today we talk about food! America’s favorite subject.

Have you had a look at your list from yesterday? Where did your food come from? How was it grown? How was it packaged?

Is there a local farmer’s market in your community? How accessible is it and how popular is it? Have you had a chance to speak with the people who grow your food?

How did the exercise yesterday of writing down your food choices impact your thinking? Were you surprised by the list at the end of the day? Are you able to track down where all your food came from? Was there a local alternative to what you ate?

One of the statistics in the NIW Manual indicates that the distance your average item of food travels to your plate is 1500 miles? What alternatives have you come up with to keep your food local and sustainable?
