September marks the return of something wonderful – the 50% Local Food Club! A province wide, month-long initiative designed to increase purchasing and consumption of local food, the 50% Local Food Club aims to support and celebrate food producers and farmers in our province.
Last September, eaters of all ages stepped up to the plate in support of local agriculture – more than 3,000 Nova Scotians committed to sourcing 50% of diet from local producers!
How can you be a part of this awesome initiative? The first step is to register, making the commitment to source 50% of your diet from local producers for the month of September. From there, browse the website for recipes, places to eat and buy local in your region. Register to participate at www.nslocalfoodclub.wordpress.com/join
