    Hi Mindy! I'd check out bealocalist.org, they have great infographics on how buying local helps communities in general, but they would also be able to point you to specific member groups that have data on specific communities. I think the Western Michigan group in particular has great data.

    Hope that helps!

    Thanks much Justine; was not aware of this group & there is a contact in WNC. Will report back with any discoveries that might help others.

    I just went to a great Webinar titled "Local Food, Local Gov't" which was put together by a great group at UNC. We are currently working with a group in our community to persuade our county commissioners to get behind supporting local food (much of what we do is agricultural based). My QUESTION to all of you is, does anyone have any TANGIBLE DATA that proves how supporting local businesses really helps a specific community?
