Today’s Topic: Sustainable Local Food Advisory Council

by | Jan 26, 2010

Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler sits down each week with the Southern Farm Network’s Rhonda Garrison to discuss “Today’s Topic.”


Over the past few years, interest in locally raised food has grown dramatically. The General Assembly took note of this trend last summer by passing legislation creating the N.C. Sustainable Local Food Advisory Council. Its diverse membership includes farmers, educators, food industry executives, community activists and local-food advocates, plus State Health Director Jeff Engel, Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco and Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler.

Listen in as Commissioner Troxler and Rhonda Garrison talk about this new group, which will have its first meeting Feb. 2 at the State Fairgrounds.
