How much locally grown food do you consume or grow?

Warrnambool City Council would like to increase the amount of local food produced and consumed.  Local, fresh and artisan food can be healthier, fresher, can use fewer 'food miles' and supports local small businesses. 

This survey is for consumers and producers of local, fresh and artisan food.  This includes fruit, vegetables, fungi, meat, seafood, poultry, eggs, dairy, artisan baked and preserved foods that are made, grown, farmed or found (fished, hunted, gathered) locally.

Much of the fresh food in supermarkets  is not grown locally.  Only some fresh and artisan food sold at delicatessens and markets is grown or made locally.
 
Ten prize winners will be randomly selected from all survey respondents who have provided contact details.  Each winner will be contacted so they can collect a box of local fresh and artisan food products valued at $60.
