WHAT IS LOCALLY SOURCED?

Locally sourced represents an alternative to the global food model, a model that often sees food traveling long distances before it reaches the consumer.  A local food network involves relationships between food producers, distributers, and consumers; and in turn, supports local vendors and businesses right here in Sullivan County.

AS A RESTAURANT OWNER:

Our team is accepting names of restaurants for consideration in this exciting program.  Establishments that are interested in participating and meeting the criteria will receive a designated logo to proudly display in their restaurant(s), as well as to utilize in advertising.  The emblem will easily identify establishments as active participants in the program.  Additionally, the Sullivan County Visitors Association (SCVA) will support the initiative by providing promotions utilizing SCVA social media.  Restaurants will also be included in the SCVA Travel guide.

AS A CONSUMER:

Look for the logo displayed in the advertising and windows of local eating establishments. By supporting these businesses, you know that you are availing yourself of healthy dining options as well as supporting the local Sullivan County area.

JOIN THE INTITATIVE:

We are encouraging Sullivan County restaurants to join and support this initiative by working with our team to select menu offerings that would meet basic healthy criteria using locally sourced ingredients.
