Local Food Sourcing By Chipotle

Chipotle is often the option of choice for those of us who need a quick meal without having to sacrifice quality. The beans are mostly organic, the meat is largely naturally raised and now that it is planning to double its use of locally sourced food, it should get a big boost in business. This is not “local” as in farmer’s market “local”  (“local” here is a 350 miles limit); but I would take it any day over a distorted food system where we insist on importing out of season produce over huge distances  just so we can satisfy our demand for asparagus in the dead of winter.We hear businesses say profit constraints prevent them from making choices that are better for the planet so when we see an initiative like this, we need to support it.
