If 100 people shift $10 of their food budget to local sustainable food:
– greenhouse gases get reduced by the equivalent of nearly 10 cars
– enough economic activity is created to produce one new job

If 1000 shift:
– nearly 100 cars worth of greenhouse gas reductions
-10 new local jobs

if 10 000 shift:
– equivalent of 1000 cars worth
-100 new local jobs
