Local Foods: From Farm to Table

We’ll talk with our panelists about how they’ll make sure the bounty of this season's farm products make it onto your table.

Many growers say linking up with local restaurants can be challenging since not all restaurants have seasonal menus.

Growers say this could be a good produce year, and many in the local foods community want to make sure all of those farm products make it into grocery stores, restaurants, and homes.This week on Noon Edition, we’ll discuss the challenges of making local farm food accessible and what some members of the southern Indiana community are doing to improve the networks between growers and consumers.

Join us Friday at 12 p.m. with your questions for our panelists. You can visit this site to be part of our live chat, follow us on Twitter @NoonEdition, or join us on the air by calling in at 812-855-0811 or 1-877-285-WFIU.
