“Local foods are patriotic, whether you’re buying them from producers in your area or growing some of your own. They’re good for our local farmers, our economies, our health, and that of the planet. Best of all, they taste great because they’re fresh from the soil. Food Independence Day is being coordinated by the nonprofit group Kitchen Gardeners International in partnership with the IATP Food and Society Fellows program. We’re asking our nation’s first families not only to lead by example but to eat by example by sourcing their meals as locally, deliciously, and sustainably as possible.”
