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 support local producers and reducing transportation impacts”
“I support local businesses”
“I support my community!”
“I know who grows it!”
“Have you ever tasted in?! Soooooo Yummy”
“It’s environmentally friendly :-)”
“the vendors make it worth it!”
“I want to support my community!”
“I know where it comes from”
“I ❤ Virginia"
“I support Local Farmers”
“You are what you eat!”
“Locally produced food can support farmers and communities!”
“I like to know how my food was grown pluse – I want my food to come from local soil.”
