Local Food Month


At Eat’n Park, we’re passionate about buying local. In fact, throughout the summer, we’re proud to feature many locally grown, seasonal fruits and veggies – not only on our Soup & Salad Bar, but also in many of our menu items. This year, we’ve expanded our passion for local food by being the presenting sponsor of Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture’s (PASA) Local Food Month in September.

This year marks the tenth anniversary of our FarmSource™ program, where we support and buy local produce. Last year alone, we spent more than $10 million dollars in local sourcing and worked with more than 200 local growers, farmers, and dairies. Our sponsorship of Local Food Month just made sense!

We’ve been a strong supporter of PASA since 2005 and really believe in their mission in supporting our local farmers. Throughout the month, various events will take place to shed light on the importance of buying local. For a full list of events, visit www.localfoodmonth.tumblr.com.

That's wonderful! Keep up the good work and expand, especially to meats and cheeses! I think very highly of this and your support of PASA.
