Food miles?

I've written before about locavores trying to eat more locally grown or produced foods. The Farmers Market is one of the best places to find these foods.But every time I eat a banana, pineapple, or other tropical foods, I feel a tad guilty. But I just discovered a website that really makes those food miles real. Check out this food miles calculator that will help raise your awareness of where your food is coming from.

Visit the VA Dept. of Agriculture's 2009 Virginia Grown Guide for other sources of locally grown produce.
