This August, Monadnock Food Co-op will join the American Independent Business Alliance (AMIBA), New Hampshire Food Alliance, and partners throughout North America to amplify the Eat Local movement. Granite staters call this celebration NH Eats Local Month: nheatslocal.com.
A strong local food system keeps communities vibrant, economies growing, and landscapes healthy. When community members eat local food, the benefits ripple out and help local businesses thrive.
“We want to inspire community members to eat more locally grown, raised, and made foods,” shared Jen Risley, Monadnock Food Co-op Marketing Manager. “We urge them to meet the farmers, growers, and chefs behind their food, support diversity in their food system, and learn new skills to keep them eating locally throughout the year.”
As part of the Eat Local Month festivities, the co-op will offer promotions highlighting the Eat Local movement. Find details at monadnockfood.coop/co-op-updates/nheatslocal.
NH Eat Local Month also coincides with National Farmers Market Week, honoring farmers’ markets across America. This celebration of local food, farmers, and producers is part of a larger Shop Indie Local year-round campaign supported by AMIBA: shopindielocal.org.
