Noon Edition

Local Food In Indiana

Fruit and vegetables are carriers of foodborne illness

This week marked the first Thanksgiving Hoosiers could buy ingredients at their grocery store labeled "Indiana Grown," a state marketing initiative created earlier this year to encourage sales of locally produced food.

Of the $16 billion of food sold in Indiana every year, officials say just 10% is grown within the state.

This week on Noon Edition we spoke with three guests about the local food industry.

Our guests:

  • David King, Indiana Grown project manager
  • Marcia Veldman, Bloomington Farmer's Market Coordinator
  • Amanda Nickey, CEO of Mother Hubbard's Cupboard

Noon Edition airs every Friday at 12 p.m.

Note: This episode was pre-recorded, so we won't be able to accept phone calls or online questions during the show.
