This morning I received an email with membership information from the newly formed Buy Fresh Buy Local South Dakota chapter. The mission of BFBLSD is simply “to increase the awareness and consumption of local foods in South Dakota”.
I’m betting that most producers and local food-oriented businesses already have BFBLSD on their radars. So I’d like to send out encouragement to the rest of us–the consumers–to consider putting just a few of your dollars to very good use by becoming a member of an organization that will soon make finding and purchasing local foods much easier for South Dakotans.
From the email I received:
The 2009 annual fees for the two consumer levels of membership are:
Each fee payment supports the mission statement of the South Dakota Chapter and receives a BUY FRESH BUY LOCAL bumper sticker. Harvester receives in addition a canvas shopping bag with the BFBL logo.
Send payments to Patrick Garrity, 1505 Jo Lane Drive, Yankton, SD 57078. All checks payable to South Dakota Specialty Producers Association – BFBL.
