Eating local? We've got a few questions for you

Why in the heck don’t you buy more locally-grown food? Can’t find any? Too expensive? You tried it once, but it was all plants?

Seriously, the Community Farm Connection wants to know how you feel about buying and eating “local,” so they’ve invited us all to take an online survey to help them determine where we shop, what we put in our baskets, if we have a home garden and if we like our chocolate-covered jelly doughnuts to be organic, salmon-safe and hormone-free. Mmm, doughnuts.

Even more seriously, they’re trying to get a handle on hunger in the community. A few survey questions address that problem.

By the way, CFC is the local nonprofit that supports small diversified farms by providing primo opportunities for farmers to sell their stuff. They run the Farmhouse Table, which sells all kinds of locally-grown produce along with yummy local products (jams, salsas, baba ganoush — mmm, baba ganoush). And they run the local CSA (community-supported agriculture), a membership group that delivers boxes of fresh fruits and veggies to subscribers.

CFC hopes the survey results will show ways “to increase access to affordable, nutritious, and culturally appropriate food.” Which probably means no doughnuts, unless they’re spinach doughnuts. Mmm, spinach dou … no, not the taste sensation we'd hoped for.

To take the survey, visit communityfarmconnection.org/english/.
