Patch Asks: How Did You Get Into Local Food?

We ask attendees at a local documentary screening how they got involved with the local food movement.

It's probably safe to say Southwest Minneapolis is gaga for local food. Restaurants across our patch of Minneapolis trumpet their use of produce grown nearby, and backyard and community gardens are a dime a dozen. 

Friday night's screening of the documentary "Fresh" at Bethlehem Lutheran Church drew a lot of these enthusiasts, but also many who are just getting involved. Southwest Minneapolis Patch asked several people who attended how they got involved with the local food movement.

I compost, I reuse containers and bags and try to avoid restos that heavily use products from large conglomerates, and I'm looking forward to learning more from this vibrant community
