Local food growers, producers sought

Partnership Needs Your Help in Adding to Locally Sourced list 

Now, more than ever, buying locally grown and produced food is vital to our community. With the events of 2020 impacting some food availability, a list is being assembled of where consumers may purchase food grown and produced in Richland County. The goal is to connect local food producers to consumers. Consumers may develop a better understanding of where their food comes from, how it is produced and get to know the people who have a passion for offering fresh food.

Partnering locally is good business

“Connecting local food producers with local businesses is a great thing for all,” said Erica Thomas, director, Richland Soil and Water Conservation District. “It keeps the money local while getting fresh, locally grown produce into more local businesses like restaurants, hospitals, nursing homes, schools, etc.  It makes sense to support the growers in our community and sustain them through these difficult times.”
