Other restaurants serving local menu’s this week include Coco’s Bistro, Pacchia and Rue Dumaine. “We think it’s important for people to understand that there is an amazing bounty of fresh, locally grown food available right here in the Miami Valley,” said Noreen Willhelm, chair of Miami Valley Grown. “Whether you’re looking for chicken, honey, pumpkins, cheeses, fish, sausage or collard greens, you can find it within a 50-mile radius of Dayton.”
For the last few years, food advocates have been working to introduce their own communities to the concept of supporting local growers and food producers, in an effort to reduce the need to ship food across the country and to highlight the flavors and variety of regional produce.
“It’s a question of food security,” Willhelm said. “When we buy locally, we know where our food is coming from and where it’s been and there’s much less likelihood that the supply can be disrupted.” The movement really took off in 2008 when gas prices in the United States spiked, causing significant price increases to cover the cost of shipping food from places like California to Ohio.
