I enjoyed a fantastic pepperoni pizza and Caesar salad the other night with friends. While we crowded around the kitchen table talking and laughing, I thought about food and its importance to my physical and emotional well-being.
There is a lot of information available these days about nutrition and how eating fresh and local foods make a difference. When I consider where the eggs, flour, tomatoes, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, peppers, lettuce for our meal came from, I realize that I often take the work of farmers and food producers for granted.
There is a new organization “The Love of Food” that was recently started by a group of volunteers who are passionate about food and want to create a sense of community around it.
On their website you will find rare recipes, stories about families who live and work on farms, a place for kids to share their ideas and a reminder of where our dinner comes from. Check it out!
