Support local food-processing
Processing – not a nice word when it comes to natural foods, but a real part of our diets. In the past, food processing took place regionally, in small local canneries, grist mills, and slaughterhouses. Nowadays, food travels from afar to reach our table and comes from larger, centralized mills – unless we consciously seek out local distributors. Today, challenge yourself to support your local community by identifingy local food processing plants and the foods they supply.
