Vincentians encouraged to eat more locally produced food

Manager of the Arrowroot Association, Selmon Walters is encouraging Vincentians to eat more locally produced food.

The appeal was made as St. Vincent and the Grenadines observed World Food Day on Wednesday 16th October.

Walters said the Association is preparing to host a National Madungo Festival this month, he said such is an important festival as efforts continue to revive the use of Madungo as the main food staple here.

Walters pledged his continued commitment towards the hosting of the festival, which is expected to be held on Monday 28th October at the Rabacca National Park, as part of activities to celebrate this county’s 40th Anniversary of Independence.
