SP trivia : How far does food travel to get to us?

Monday, July 28, 2014

Our existing system of food transportation and distribution requires enormous amounts of energy and resources.


Before reaching your table, the average food item in the United States will travel 1,300 miles!


This is one of many reasons that environmentalists and nutritionists alike recommend eating locally grown food as much as possible.
