Reading Together Survey

Reading Together

What if the entire community read the same book at the same time? This year, we feature TWO different titles written by TWO different authors. The theme, in a word, is FOOD.

Buying Local Food

(Food, Agriculture) Permanent link

The topic of buying local food stuffs is not only a significant message of the Kalamazoo Reading Together book selections, but it is also an important message nation-wide. 

This morning (4-3-14), on Good Morning America, celebrity chef Mario Batali prepared a meal that cost roughly $1.40 per serving while promoting the purchase of local food from area farmers’ markets. Here in the Kalamazoo area, we have some great ones. Here is a link to a complete listing.

So if you can’t plant your own garden or don’t have room for all of the wonderful fruits and vegetables that can thrive In Michigan, plan to visit one of the local markets!
