Local Food Initiative

What is “local food”?

For the Berea College Local Food Initiative, the word “local” represents:

  • The proximity of the growers, processors, and eaters,
  • An informed concern for the long-term health of the ecosystems and people involved, and
  • A celebration of local and regional nature and culture.
  • Therefore, “local” means a commitment to local resources first, then state, regional, and national resources.
