100 Mile Diet: Finding Food


Commenters to our recent post about the 100 mile diet have been suggesting that someone should set up a Craiglist type site that will help people find appropriate food. The Sustainable Table people (they were part of the fabulous Meatrix movies) have created the Eat Well Guide where "Consumers simply enter their zip code to find local products [meat, poultry and eggs] that were raised sustainably, including no antibiotics, no added hormones, pasture raised, grass fed and organic. Scores of new farms and stores are being added on a continual basis." You can set the radius of the search to limit it to 100 miles or less. In many parts of the United states and Canada meat and eggs are the easiest things to find within a hundred miles- we look forward to a veggie option. ::Eat Well Guide
