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.
- 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.
