Lo·ca·vore

/ˈlōkəˌvôr/

noun:

A person who recognizes the value of supporting locally grown and produced food as fundamental to the stability of the health and wealth of their community.

When you make the choice to eat locally, not only do you strengthen the roots that feed you, you become part of a more sustainable economy.

You help to grow a community.

And in doing so, you also increase food security, over-all health and well-being, and a cleaner environment. 

We are the Lopez Locavores, a not-for-profit organization passionately dedicated to cultivating community through the support and celebration of local food, farm and education.
