OF THE WEEK:
THANKSGIVING = LOCAL FAMILY FARMER APPRECIATION DAY
The average American consumes more calories on Thanksgiving
Day than any other day of the year. With the average food
traveling 2500 miles from farm to fork, the Thanksgiving
dinner cornucopia can add up to a substantial amount of
greenhouse gases created in the shipping process. This
Thanksgiving, consider taking the "buy local"
challenge. You can do a world of good by putting a little
effort into buying locally grown foods.
