Support locally owned food businesses this festive season. For every dollar spent locally, much can be reinvested into our local economy.
Have you noticed any changes on the LFC website lately? We are updating it regularly. We encourage you to share your thoughts and knowledge about local and seasonal food.
Best wishes for the festive season from the committee of Local Food Connect!
