Excerpt from the Introduction:
We believe that the "eat local" trend is more than just a fad - it is a movement that is here to stay and may someday be a matter of survival in a world with fluctuating oil and food prices. This movement has sometimes been criticized as an elitist trend, where the well off feast on swanky gourmet food and luxury items that common folk can't afford. Local Choices refutes this misconception by bringing together stories of ordinary people who believe in the value of eating local and are making it a priority for their family. Most of our contributors are of average income (some well below average). They come from many walks of life and represent a variety of food philosophies, from strict vegetarian to committed carnivore. They have made sacrifices to choose foods that affect their health, their communities and their world in a positive way.
