USDA to host live local foods Twitter chat
Three years ago the United States Department of Agriculture launched the Know Your Farmer Know Your Food Initiative. It encourages people to support local agriculture. Since then the USDA has released the Know Your Farmer Know Your Food Compass, an online tool that allows users to see how the “USDA supports local and regional food economies; see examples of producers, businesses and communities putting these resources to work; and explore the map to find out what's happening near you.”
