That the local grocery stores would go out of their way to purchase produce from farmers who grew product within a 25 mile radius of the grocery store making the purchase.

I would like to see local butchers be able to sell directly to grocery stores so we know exactly where our meat comes from. Also, the majority of the produce in the grocery store should come from within 50 miles of the store, from within the county if at all possible.

These are my thoughts for the Sonoma County area. Have the farmers and ranchers create a cooperative to market their product and look into creating a local cannery to market locally grown and harvested produce or the community and local restaurants.

I would like to see a community version of UC Merced's "No Food Left Behind," wherein interested people are notified by phone when there is leftover food available from a community event, and the event organizers are released from liability. Also, we need supermarkets on the airport side of Merced; perhaps the city and/or county can provide a five-year tax discount that increases slightly from the first year to the fifth to any supermarket, up to three, that opens in the "food desert" areas of the city.

YES!!! I have wanted to do a NFLB for the community, but I don't know who would fund it. @belindabraunstein
