Emory helps you eat fresh and local

One of the best ways to eat healthy is to eat local, and Emory offers many opportunities to help you do just that.

Why eat local? Eating local foods benefits our Georgia farmers. And, the freshness of the products is unmatched! Often, products are harvested the very morning they are sold. In contrast, non-local produce is shipped cross-country or from other parts of the world, withering in the back of a truck or harvested before it ripens. Supporting local farmers and their businesses helps our own local economy and gives us a chance to have a say in the WAY we want our produce grown.
