*Author Sees Local Food
Brian Halweil, author of *Home Grown: The Case for Local Food in a Global
*, writes in the Spring 2006 issue of YES! magazine that a local food
revolution is taking place in America, as people tire of anonymous food. He
cites growing numbers of farmers' markets, rising membership in Slow Food
USA, more school cafeterias serving local food, and an increasing variety of
artisanal food choices as evidence that people want to know where their food
comes from and what's in it. Halweil points out some of the benefits of
eating locally, and calls it "a sort of declaration of independence."
