Why Eat Locally?

Join Serene & Gabrielle as they encourage listeners to think about 10 Reasons to Eat Locally Locally grown food tastes and looks better. Crops marketed close to home are picked at their peak and usually sold within 24 hours of harvesting. Food imported from far away must travel on trucks or planes and then it is stored in warehouses. Local food is better for you. For more information go to www.berkshiregrown.org.
