Localvore

A Localvore is a person dedicated to eating food grown and produced locally. Many localvore organizations (known as Pods) have sprung up in communities across Vermont. Localvore pods are inspiring their communities to chose local foods, and supporting their local farmers: creating demand for the delicious food grown in Vermont.

Given the forecast of Wal-Mart gaining market share in organic food sales, peak oil, and on a very local level, farms struggling to survive in Vermont, it is a critical time for us to re-localize our food system, challenge our food purchasing and consumption patterns, and seek our nourishment closer to home.
