'Seasonal Food Guide' is a new app and online resource that helps consumers to suss out the freshest local produce wherever they are. The simple and intuitive app searches for in-season produce based on the specified region, making it easier for consumers to eat healthy while doing their part for the environment.
In recent years, environmental groups have stressed the importance of eating locally. Not only does it support nearby farmers, but the reduced transportation distance saves emissions and limits ones carbon footprint. All this sounds great in theory, but it's impossible to eat locally if one doesn't know what's grown locally throughout the year.
The Seasonal Food Guide app and website solve this problem. After choosing one's home state, users can search for in-season produce either by time of year or by type of produce. The platform also includes a 'Learn & Cook' feature to help with recipe ideas and preparation.
