Buy Fresh Buy Local


From 2006 until 2012, the Kerr Center served as the Oklahoma chapter affiliate for the Buy Fresh, Buy Local campaign. In 2012, the Oklahoma Farm and Food Alliance took over as the Oklahoma Buy Fresh Buy Local chapter affiliate. (Contact them for more information,)

Buy Fresh Buy Local connects citizens to farm-fresh, locally grown food and farm products. Through food guides, market listings, promotions and point of sale materials, the campaign makes it easier for Oklahomans to find and purchase great tasting local foods.

As the Oklahoma affiliate, the Kerr Center helped coordinate the campaign's growth across the state, one community at a time.

Led by the Green Country chapter of the Oklahoma Sustainability Network, Buy Fresh Buy Local – Green Country published a guide to local food in the Tulsa area in 2007. The guide was updated in subsequent years, and in 2010, Buy Fresh Buy Local – Central Oklahoma and Buy Fresh Buy Local – Payne County also published local food guides for their areas.

The national Buy Fresh, Buy Local campaign is spearheaded and coordinated by FoodRoutes Network, a nonprofit whose mission is "reintroducing Americans to their food – the seeds it grows from, the farmers who produce it, and the routes that carry it from the fields to their tables."




Kerr Center Buy Fresh Buy Local activities were funded in part by
USDA CSREES CFP grant # 2007-33800-18612.
