Just as the leaves were falling and gardeners were harvesting their crops, Dining Services launched a new local-foods initiative. As of mid-November, the salad bar in Roberts consists entirely of local produce. It may seem challenging, especially during the winter, but Maine farmers offer diverse vegetables year-round. Greenhouse-grown lettuces, tomatoes from nearby Madison, and carrots and broccoli from Aroostook County are among the foods offered.

    Nice! I'm using this initiative (and the Morning Sentinel article about it) as good examples in my university teaching this month in Finland: Destination Marketing & Local Development. Perhaps buying local can be emulated there!
