DULUTH - Here's some food for thought: Believe it or not, Duluth once had a thriving agriculture that supplied food to both Minneapolis and Chicago.
This was a tid bit coming from the "Good Food Lecture" in Duluth Monday night.
Researchers showed different ways we can all help reinvest in the local agriculture and why it's so vital to the area.
"Where we examine various parts of our food system in the Northland, to help people understand how we can create a food system that's fair, affordable, green, and healthy" said Jamie Harvie.
The Good Food Network has made a goal for restaurants in the Northland to invest 20 percent of their food purchases into local agriculture by 2020.
