Today’s ‘Eat Local’ Panel

18 Apr

(l to r) Daniel Doyle, Shannon Adams, Ron Shapiro, Mike Stanton, Michelle McAnally, John Currence and John T. Edge

The meeting space inside Barnard Observatory was filled beyond capacity this afternoon when Oxonians gathered to hear about eating locally from John Currence, John T. Edge, Shannon Adams, Daniel Doyle, Michelle McAnally, Mike Stanton and Ron Shapiro. While the panelists had much to say about their own efforts to eat—and offer—local food, there was one fact that everyone kept returning to—eating local starts with you.

You can start by making a conscious effort to know where your food originated. Asking—and encouraging—local restaurateurs to buy local is one of the best ways to ensure that what you consume is not being shipped from thousands of miles away. Make it a point the next time you eat out to ask where your fish or chicken came from and if the vegetables were purchased from a nearby farm. You may be surprised to hear the answer.

There are several restaurants here in town that are already serving locally obtained food. Let us know your favorites here.
