I stumbled upon this tasty news nugget today: Kingstec students Love our Local!
Business students at the NSCC campus in Kentville are encouraging students to buy food grown in the area. It’s a Facebook campaign, naturally. Local businesses that donate items or gift certificates get free advertising, while some lucky student wins free food.
Do college students in the Valley really need a push to buy local? The biz students seem to think so. Maybe a list of Valley producers is just what they need to get started. And really, free samples are always a good idea.
Good luck with the project, students. I hope it sprouts fast and wide.
