Local Foods Columns as Published in the Rockford Register Star GO Section

The University of Illinois Extension Winnebago County Local Foods Work Group has been featured in the Rockford Register Star's GO section writing a Local Foods Column each week. Members of the work group are addressing issues that affect us locally, statewide, and nationally and that are of interest to the readers. Updates on events and projects, nutritionally information, policy updates and how to columns have appeared.

The columns are made available through Extension's website with the hopes that more can learn from them and enjoy the varied experiences and opinions of the Work Group.
