Are those tomatoes from Holland?!

If you could rack up points for the miles your food traveled, you’d probably have quite the vacation. For example, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council’s website,   http://www.nrdc.org/health/foodmiles/results.asp?state=45&season=9 nearly 270 million  (that’s million) pounds of grapes travel 5,900 miles from Chile to Los Angeles releasing 7,000 tons of global warming pollution each year. Check out their website for an interactive list of what’s in season near you.
