About the 30 Mile Meal:

The 30 Mile Meal provides a shared identity for our many farmers, specialty food producers, farmers and retail markets, food events, and independently-owned eateries and bars featuring locally sourced menus. All create and nurture our 'Garden of Eatin.'

The 30 Mile Meal Project is a collaboration of the ACCVB, the Appalachian Center for Economic Networks (ACEnet) and 140+ local food partners. This initiative pushes the envelope on the growing 100 Mile Meal movement with our own 'super-local' effort to assist visitors and residents in finding local foods and places where you can savor the flavors and food experiences of our region. Here's a quick look at some of the people and places of the 30 Mile Meal.
