Sustainable food sourcing
Locally sourced food is a more sustainable, more ecologically friendly alternative to mainstream methods such as buying through a large scale food distribution wholesaler. Accessing local producers affords the buyer a greater degree of power over how their produce is grown, harvested, stored and transported and so on. When interacting with a producer, buyers have options; they may purchase food once its harvested, at a farmers market, roadside stand or at a retailer., Abstract -- Executive summary -- 1.

Food storage needs assessment research report for the Seasoned Spoon
Since the Seasoned Spoon started in February of 2003, it has had a major food storage challenge. It has had very limited and inadequate space to store and preserve food. This lack of storage and preservation methods has impeded the Seasoned Spoon from providing as much locally grown, organic and affordable food as possible - as outlined in the Seasoned Spoon mandate. In locating areas for the Seasoned Spoon to store its food and in understanding and undertaking other food preservation methods, the Seasoned Spoon will further be able to contribute to the underlying goals of a sustainable food system., Section 1: Introduction. Purpose. Importance of food storage and preservation. Current food storage/preservation situation at Seasoned Spoon. About food storage and preservation. Key research goals. Major findings -- Section 2: Information. Timeline. Summary of meetings with consultants -- Section 3: Analysis of results and recommendations. Avenues already explored. Suggestions for further research. Review of recommendations -- Section 4: References -- Appendices. Appendix A: Amount of food used by the Seasoned Spoon. Appendix B: Storing vegetables at home.
