Why Do You Choose Local?
Last week, in honor of Earth Week, a group of photos were posted on Virginia Tech Dining Services’ facebook page that raised the question, “Why do you choose local food?”
Anna Isserow, a student in the Civic Agriculture & Food Systems minor has partnered with Dining Services for the past two years to work on a final capstone project that supports Dining Services’ Sustainability efforts.
The result was this “Why Do You Choose Local” campaign. These pictures (and a few drawings) now inform what campus thinks about eating and supporting local food options on campus! Take a look!
“I know where it comes from”
“I like to know how my food was grown pluse – I want my food to come from local soil.”
“Locally produced food can support farmers and communities!”
“I support Local Farmers”
“the vendors make it worth it!”
“I want to support my community!”
“I support my community!”
“I support local businesses”
“It’s environmentally friendly :-)”
“You are what you eat!”
“Have you ever tasted in?! Soooooo Yummy”
“I know who grows it!”
“I support local producers and reducing transportation impacts”
“I ❤ Virginia"
