Last Wednesday was our first outing as part of my summer experience for the project. I attended the Alamance Co Food Collaborative meeting which was help at Pandora’s Pies (which was delicious). The overall point for this meeting was that Elon University Dining wants to serve locally grown fresh produce. We met with a variety of people in the community that all act in different roles and will be a part in getting this food collaborative rolling. Some questions we are still pondering …. how do we get the farmers involved? what rules and regulations have to be in place first? is there enough of a demand to make it worth the time?
Do you know where your food you ate today came from? How far did it travel to get to your plate? Where is your favorite local place to shop?
I would love to hear your thoughts! Stay tuned for more to come! Day 2 gets even better!
