Sustainable Table Web site \"builds community through food\"

 |  NCR Today

Every day more and more consumers are shopping smarter, eating healthier, and enjoying an abundance of fresh, locally-grown products. The Web site Sustainable Table was created to celebrate this fast-growing, dynamic movement, to educate consumers on food-related issues, and to help build community through food.

Sustainable agriculture involves food production methods that are healthy, do not harm the environment, respect workers, are humane to animals, provide fair wages to farmers, and support farming communities. But rather than focus on the problems, Sustainable Table promotes the positive shift toward local, small-scale sustainable farming.

Sustainable Table covers a wide range of topics and features a link that allows you to find local, sustainable food sources in your area. It also includes helpful articles about sustainability in agriculture and also recipes for daily use, plus an "Ecocentric" blog.
