I remember when I was young, by my house there is a local food market thing that they grow plants and sell them. My parents and I usually just go there to get corn or something else like that.
Food Challenge #5
Tell a story of one of your favorite Vermont local food experiences.
Sometimes a person needs a story more than food to stay alive. - Barry Lopez
Eating locally food is better for a whole heap of reasons, but it's not always easy. Sharing stories helps us build community, and gives us the chance to learn how to incorporate local food into our lives.
- Pick a Food Category: Procuring/Growing/Eating/Sharing
- Check out our resource tips on the elements of a good story and why eating local is important.
- Tell YOUR story. Make it memorable, meaningful, funny, or moving. It should be one you want to tell - and one you'd want to hear.
