If coronavirus has taught us anything, it’s that sustainability happens at the community level. Rising grocery store prices and empty store shelves have become the norm in the face of the pandemic. At Fitness Kitchen, we are part of a network of small businesses in California that bring fresh produce and proteins to our customers, through the hard-work and dedication of local farmers, butchers, truckers, distributors, and chefs. Everybody in our network works hard to bring the Los Angeles area fresh, delicious, clean food.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our customers for supporting small business. We truly believe in local food, and it is our pleasure to be able to share it with you all.
The Benefits of Eating Locally Grown Food
Eating healthy is good for your mind and body in countless ways. Eating local food is even better. Here are some reasons why:
- Local food is fresh and full of flavor: store-bought produce has often traveled great distances to get to the shelves. When you buy local produce, it’s not far from the ground or vine from which it came – which makes for richer flavors.
- Eating seasonally is good for your health and environment: eating from the farm ensures that your body is staying in line with the cycles of the seasons.
- Local food is good for the local economy: local food cuts back on the corporate transfer of food via trucking & shipping, and instead puts money back into local communities.
- Local food promotes a safer food supply chain: as we have seen with the coronavirus, food supply chains can be easily disturbed when done on a global scale. Focusing on local food removes the risk of disturbance.
There are so many reasons why eating local is important to our health and communities. Fitness Kitchen LA is proud to be a small business, bringing clean food from California to our customers.
