Localecopia is hosting a meet & greet to kick off the 2014-2015 at The Breakers Palm Beach on November 19 from 1-3pm. This is an opportunity to meet the local producers and chefs who utilize the local products. Attendance is free; RSVP to Valet parking will be complimentary for event attendees.

“One of the goals at The Breakers is to be a leader in sustainable environmental practices. Procuring food and other products locally is critical to helping run a sustainable business. Buying local not only reduces greenhouse gas emissions created from procuring items from national and international sources but gives us fresher, more nutritious and even safer products. I believe Localecopia is the logical solution to make local sustainable product procurement viable. Localecopia also provides a network to enable our community to develop meaningful sustainability programs. I think this is a model for any community to develop the changes critically needed be better caretakers of our environment.— Rick Hawkins – Director of Materials Management – The Breakers Palm Beach.
