What's in Season - August
Why eat what's in season?
Eating seasonally means buying and eating food when it’s at its best. This means buying foods that are ripe and ready at this time of year and those that can be sourced locally. More benefits to eating seasonally include:
- Helping the environment: more energy is needed to transport and store food that hasn’t been sourced locally, creating more emissions.
- Saving money: seasonal food is usually in good supply, meaning it won’t cost as much.
- Supporting your local economy and small-scale farmers.
- Providing you with fresher, longer-lasting food: seasonal food is fresher, which makes it more delicious and nutritious, and lasts longer – meaning less food wasted!
