What is the 30 Mile Meal? A Brief Overview
The 30 Mile Meal is a local food branding and promotional campaign which aims to provide a shared identity for our many farmers, specialty food producers, retail markets, food events, and independently-owned eateries and bars featuring locally-sourced menus. It is designed to educate individuals and businesses on the availability of local food and offer incentives to buy local while strengthening the bottom line for local farmers and food businesses. The effort will help spur economic development and create tourist destinations in our region based on local food. We are reaching out to complementary businesses, community organizations and groups as well as government officials and economic development professionals to grow this campaign.
