Our Eat Local Challenge was featured on the Osgood File radio show. It was a great piece including nice commentary from author Michael Pollan. However, they got one fact wrong. Charles Osgood comments that we had to cut all sugar from today’s menus. Not true. Our Ohio team found local beet sugar. It’s from the Michigan Sugar company which is 121 miles away from Oberlin College.
Eckerd College also found a sugar company, Florida Crystals, but they aren’t using the sugar. Instead they are buying brown rice from the sustainably-oriented company.
