Hoosiers Encouraged To Eat Local This Week

Last updated on Monday, September 6, 2010

(UNDATED) - This is your week to ‘go local’.

It is a one week "challenge" to Indiana citizens to eat at least one Indiana locally grown or produced food at each meal.

Hoosiers are encouraged to visit a local farmers' market this week and buy local grown produce and meats, or try Indiana artisan special creations such as hot sauces, delicious baked goods or Indiana wines.

Studies show that a dollar spent locally will multiply itself by 3 to 5 times making the actual economic impact of that one dollar in the local community where it was spent far greater than a buck.
