What Color is Your Porch?

Or, what Purple Porch would really like to know: How local is your food?

Purple Porch is a member-owned, food co-op. But don’t let that stop you from checking it out. Anyone can purchase from them. And they’ve made it easy with online ordering. For Wednesday pick up (5-7pm) at LangLab (1302 High St), order over the weekend. For Saturday pick up (8-11:30am) at Good Shepherd School, order Tuesday – Thursday. Or, just stop in to those locations during the listed hours and shop!

Purple Porch is “committed to growing a local, sustainable economy that will reduce our carbon footprint through the purchasing of locally produced foods. We aim to connect people in Michiana who want to buy local, organic and/or fair trade food with local growers who produce that food.” Obviously, the quicker food gets from the farm to your table, the fresher it will be.  As Purple Porch continues to point out,  it “… consumes less energy to get to your table, and is ultimately healthier for you and the planet.”
