Buy Local Produce


In the U.S., fruits and veggies travel an average of 1,500 miles before reaching your table — that’s halfway across the country!

Here’s a Green Tip for your family dinner: choose local produce, which cuts back on energy used in transportation and usually ensures a fresher product. We love local farmer’s markets. Better yet, grow your own!

    Love the site; it’s so beautiful and accessible. I only wish that the facebook posts appeared on the site, as well. It’s hard to monitor the website and the facebook group. It’d be much easier if the website were a one stop shop for all Family Dinner information! Looking forward to purchasing the book and diving into the recipes!
