Eat the seasons

Tags: energy | engagement | procurement | food | student | staff | economy | nature | Seasonal | fresh


There are a number of good reasons to eat more local, seasonal food:

  • to reduce the energy (and associated CO2 emissions) needed to grow and transport the food we eat
  • to avoid paying a premium for food that is scarcer or has travelled a long way
  • to support the local economy
  • to reconnect with nature's cycles and the passing of time
  • but, most importantly, because
  • seasonal food is fresher and so tends to be tastier and more nutritious
