Sara Clow, General Manager of GrowFood Carolina

What’s a local food hub and why should I care?

When was the last time you thought about where your food came from and what impact it had on your environment, health, and community? Food is the great common denominator and our choices affect most areas of our lives. The majority of the food consumed in the US now comes from a factory, not a field. This shift and globalization of the food system has had multiple negative effects including obesity, rural poverty, and increased fossil fuel use in agriculture. Local food hubs are starting around the country in order to revitalize local food systems and keep small to mid size family farmers farming.

Sara Clow, General Manager of GrowFood Carolina, will share with you how GrowFood Carolina, South Carolina’s First Local Food Hub, works and the large impact this local food hub can have in SC and beyond.

 

How big is your footprint?

If you weren't in such a hurry the mountains could stay mountains!

We'll See you Outside and April 3, 2014 for Sara Clow's talk
