Listen to the Story

Central Ohio planners are calling for a return to basics in food production.

The Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission Thursday unveiled an 18 page report with 24 recommendations on ways to boost the local food network. MORPC Energy & Environment Director Jerry Tinianow says only one percent of food consumed in Ohio comes from Ohio.

He notes, local produce would receive a big boost if universities, hospitals and other local institutions decide to use local sources for more of their food.
