A positive of this current situation is that it’s given us time to think; a moment to stop and reflect on what we have been eating and who we have been supporting over the years. From the small business owner who runs a local farm, to that little restaurant you frequently visit – now is the time they need you the most. Shopping local isn’t a trend, its an important way to support local economies while ensuring the freshest ingredients.
This is an invitation for you to step out of your ‘New Normal” routine. We live in South Florida, instead of forming lines outside supermarkets surrounded by people, drive a little further and purchase just-harvested produce directly from your local farmer. In these unprecedented times, Change starts and stays at home.
