D.C. Foodshed Map Points to Local Resources

Cross-posted from the D.C. Food for All Blog.



“Eating local” is nothing more than a turn-of-phrase without defining the word “local.” Although some corporate natural foods stores label blueberries from Northern New Jersey as local to D.C., most agricultural advocates define local as grown or otherwise produced within 100 miles of the buyer. This range is often referred to as a region’s “foodshed.” Thankfully, we here in the D.C.… Continue

Hi Shannon, glad you signed up. I'd wanted to send you the Kinsale Energy Descent Plan to look over. See if it's something you'd like to start working on to localize for our purpose. You can access it directly from the Forum.

Shannon, I wanted to send you the political info you requested yesterday, but I don't want to use these pages for that purpose. Please send me your personal e-mail and I will forward the info to you.

Shannon, did you see the Washington Times article on Tuesday regarding the DC school food program? Its publication might present a fresh opportunity to pressure the city for a real school/food/farm program or at least some steps in that direction. The piece is at http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/jan/26/dc-school-lunch-firm-questioned . I'm happy to offer effort if a strategy is in place. Susan
