While a 2006 study found that less than 1% of the $798 million of food Sarasota County residents purchased annually was produced locally, a shift of just 10% in this direction could add $80 million a year to our local economy, potentially creating thousands of new green jobs.

This is just one of the many reasons why Transition Sarasota has created our 10% Local Food Shift Pledge.

Join hundreds of individuals and institutions who have already committed to growing or buying at least 10% of their food from local, sustainable sources. By doing so, you will not only be making an important investment in your health and the health your family, you will also be fostering a healthier community and planet for generations to come.
