Eat Local During Ohio Local Foods Week

“There’s no one single definition of ‘local foods,’ but we encourage consumers to think about it and decide what local foods are to them, based on their own values.”

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Would you spend $10 a week on local foods?

Ohio State University Extension is encouraging Ohioans to pledge to do just that Aug. 9-15 during the first-ever statewide Ohio Local Foods Week.

Before the week even started, nearly 100 people had already made the pledge online at localfoods.osu.edu, but organizers are hoping for many more.

“There are a lot of different ways ‘local foods’ can be defined,” said Patrice Powers-Barker, OSU Extension educator who helped organize the week. “It could be a certain geographic area, a radius of a certain number of miles or even a supply chain in which consumers buy directly from producers.

“There’s no one single definition of ‘local foods,’ but we encourage consumers to think about it and decide what local foods are to them, based on their own values.”

The website is the online presence of OSU Extension’s Local Foods Signature Program, which addresses local food system issues from production through consumption. It includes resources such as “Farm to Health” materials, which provides nutrient and phytonutrient information as well as recipes for fruits and vegetables grown in Ohio. The Local Foods Week information on the website contains listings of events throughout the state celebrating Ohio Local Foods Week, including a “Celebrate Local, Eat Sustainable” event in Massillon on Aug. 13 and community garden tours in Columbus and a farm and property tour at Gorman Heritage Farm in Evendale on Aug. 15.

“Research has shown that people are willing to spend more money at restaurants when local foods are part of the menu,” Powers-Barker said. “But local foods are for everyone, no matter what your income level.”

She encourages consumers who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (formerly food stamps) to see if their local farmers market accepts the Ohio Direction Card or even provide matching funds. Senior centers also often have agreements with farmers markets to supplement purchases for income-eligible elderly, she said.

According to the 2012 Census of Agriculture, Ohio ranks in the top 10 states in agricultural direct-to-consumer marketing, said Heather Neikirk, OSU Extension educator who is also helping organize the week. Agriculture remains Ohio’s No. 1 industry, totaling more than $105 billion in annual revenue.

“We’ve seen continued growth and expansion in the local foods movement,” Neikirk said. “Ohio is unique in that we have many metropolitan and micropolitan areas, so we have lots of opportunities for an urban-rural interface. That allows us to create those direct connections between producers and consumers.”

WCHS Black Cat Adoption Event

Sunday, August 16th black cats over 6 months of age can be adopted for a $5.00 fee and kittens under 6 months for $10.00.

(Bowling Green)- Are you superstitious? Thanks to movies, Halloween characters, and scary stories passed on around fall campfires our black felines have acquired a bad reputation. Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) would like to reverse that thinking and help raise awareness about how valued and lovable these cats can be. National Black Cat Appreciation day is next Monday and we would like to honor our black cats with an adoption event.

Sunday, August 16th black cats over 6 months of age can be adopted for a $5.00 fee and kittens under 6 months for $10.00. Come out to WCHS at 801 Van Camp Road, Bowling Green, Ohio and see what these often overlooked animals have to offer.

Adoption hours at the shelter are Wednesday and Thursday from 12 to 7p.m. and Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 12 to 4p.m. The adoption special is only valid with an approved application. Wood County Humane Society reserves the right to determine which cats and kittens fall under the specials criteria. All of our adoptable pets are fully tested, vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and loved.

 

The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a private, non-profit managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. The organization receives no funding from government organizations, The United Way, or national humane organizations, instead relying on earned revenue and the generosity of individual donors and businesses to fund our programs such as Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cars, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. All animals admitted into our adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their fur-ever home. For more information on adopting and/or volunteering, see:
