Oct 2013 Update: Lake County Grown is no longer in existence, though this food guide remains relevant.
The 2nd edition local food guide is primarily part of a countywide effort to promote “Eat Fresh—Buy Lake County Grown” by encouraging all residents to buy local first.
You may have noticed promotional message on banners at local Farmers’ Markets, in newspaper articles featuring local farmers, the Online website to order year-round produce, and local restaurants who support purchasing local produce.
The food guide is another way to promote healthy food choices. Eating widely from the array of fruit, vegetables and tree nuts available from local growers contributes to individual health as well as the health of our economy.
Food is a basic essential of life, the more local food we produce and consume the more we bolster our health, local food availability and food security.
The Lake County Food Guide was funded by a CA Department of Food & Agriculture "Specialty Crop" block grant.
