local food on tv (for real this time)

No tv at home, but thanks to a chance encounter with a stranger I learned about the recent NH Outlook program LiveFIT NH: Media’s Influence and Food Insecurity . At around 15:45 (you can watch the whole thing online, thanks NHPTV!), there is a segment interviewing John Carroll of UNH’s Office of Sustainability in which he sums up very well what we can do to help ensure a healthier, food secure future: make farming economically viable by buying local produce.

He also advocates for more year-round farmers’ markets to provide greater access to food – it just so happens that Seacoast Eat Local is helping to organize two winter farmers’ markets this year – November 17th and December 22nd, to coincide with Thanksgiving and Christmas. They will be at the Atlantic Culinary Academy in Dover, NH from 9am – 2pm. Bring the whole family! And if you are a farmer or food producer (or know of a farmer or food producer) who would like to vend at these markets, drop us a line!
