While I prefer knowing exactly where my food is coming from sometimes it just isn’t possible to spend your weekends at the farmer’s market or to grow your food. In this fast paced, on the go world I end up having to run to the local grocery store and do my best to make good choices. Having a local grocery store that cares enough to supply local homegrown food choices makes making healthy choices for my family a far easier process.
There are far several benefits to choosing local homegrown food. One of the first that comes to mind are the health benefits. When crops don’t have to travel long distance they can be grown for taste and health, rather than grown specifically with the ability to survive while being transported long distance. Buying and eating locally grown food is also healthy for the economy, instead of purchasing food grown across the country or even in other parts of the world you are able to invest in your local economy.
Get all the health benefits of homegrown produce with Hy-Vee’s Local Homegrown Twitter Party July 22nd at 2pm CST with #WinFreshWinLocal
