Cook with Local Produce


Local produce doesn't need to be shipped long distance, and therefore helps to promote energy conservation by reducing the use of fossil fuels and packaging. It also helps to support the environment by offering a habitat to local wildlife and preserving open space.

Even if you don't have a backyard vegetable garden, you can still cook with locally grown produce. Find out what fruit and vegetables are in season with this printable seasonal produce list, and then let your kids help whip up one of these tasty spring-inspired meals.
