August 7-13 is Local Foods Week and all Ohioans are encouraged to buy local and participate in the $10 Ohio Local Foods Challenge. To participate in the challenge, Ohioans commit to spend at least $10 this week on your favorite local foods. There is not one definition for “local” food. When making food decisions, many people consider where their food was grown or raised and make an effort to develop personal connections with growers and producers to enjoy flavorful, safe, local food. Ohio Local Foods week is not only about enjoying the tastes of local foods but is also about becoming more aware and better informed about the nutritional, economic, and social benefits of local foods in Ohio.
