Food Miles

The distance food travels from where it is grown or raised to where it is ultimately purchased by the consumer or end-user. "Local food systems can reduce ‘food miles’ and transportation costs, offering significant energy savings. Consumers also benefit from fresher, better-tasting, and more nutritious food, while more food dollars stay within rural communities."
