Why eat local food?
Dr. Kevin Stolarick, The Martin Prosperity Institute, University of Toronto, as quoted in The Ontario Table by Lynn Ogryzlo:
"If every household in Ontario spent $10 per week on local food, we'd have an additional $2.4 billion in our local economy at the end of the year. Keeping our money circulating grows those dollars to $3.6 billion and creates 10,000 new jobs."
