Could your family eat only foods from within 100 miles of your home? This was a show on Discovery, based on a book by a couple of Canadians. A number of families in the town of Mission BC participated in the show, It was interesting to watch and very enlightening when it came to looking in my own cupboards and fridge. I've decided that I am going to try to find things grown and produced locally and if not, I will try to find a local substitute before simply buying what is readily available.
The cost of food production, transportation of said food and the global impact it all has is enormous, our population is growing but our food production capabilities are going down due to over farming, over fertilization and mass production of cheap crops like corn for fuel and high fructose corn syrup.
Do you think eating locally would be hard for your family?
