Eat Fresh, Buy Local

SEE WEBSITE :: Farmers Union

"Eat Fresh, Buy Local" is a slogan or phrase that is becoming more commonplace among consumers. But what is the true meaning behind these words? The National Farmers Union, dedicated to the economic and social well-being of farming and ranching families in rural communities, has created grade-appropriate, stand-alone lesson plans that give students scientific and practical knowledge on sustainable food.

Topics include: the difference between fresh, preserved, and processed foods, how to read food labels, principles of co-ops, and the slow food movement.
