Local Matters is a central Ohio nonprofit organization whose mission is to transform the food system to be more secure, prosperous, just and delicious! They believe that food connects us to the most important issues of our times: our health, our economy, and our environment.
According to their website, Local Matters "created programs and partnerships to make sure that children and adults know where their food really comes from and what healthy, wholesome food is; to support our communities need for better access to healthy, local food and healthful ways to prepare it; and to entice our local farmers to grow more local food while helping them make a living wage while they do it!"
