OSU Extension Lucas County partners with partners across Northwest Ohio to celebrate Ohio Local Foods Week. (#localfoodsOH)

August is a great time to celebrate Ohio Local Foods Week because of the availability of a wide vareity of Ohio-grown fresh produce. However, we encourage our community partners to purchase and promote local food throughout the year. Even during wintertime, Ohio local food is available. Whether it is fresh produce grown with season extension or baked, canned, frozedn, and dried foods, there are opportunites to enjoy Ohio food throughout the year.
