Link Love – All About Local Food

I’m a bit overdue for sharing some of my recent discoveries on the net. Check out some of my findings that just happen to be about what we all love…Food!

1) We all have canning jars, right? (Even those of you who don’t can probably have a few in the cupboard). Well, here is a neat little lid you can put on your canning jar to turn it into a sippie cup for grownups. AND it is BPA free. Seriously! Go here to buy one.

2) Food Forward is an all volunteer, grassroots group of Angelenos who reconnect people with people through food. They harvest and distribute locally grown food from private homes to local food pantries and organizations. What they are doing here is a great example of what can be done anywhere.

3) I love TED talks. Here is a list of the “best” TED talks on eating and food policy.

4) A new food program in Santa Barbara: Grow Your Own Way, aims to teach participants how to grow at least a portion of their own food, gives them the supplies and tools they need to succeed, and requires that they then give back to their community through volunteer activities to help even more people achieve at least partial food independence.
