Local Food Cost Calculator

In response to excuses that adding local food to the menu in restaurants or institutions would be too expensive, American local food group SCALEdeveloped a ‘Local food cost calculator’.

The calculator can be used as a budgeting tool or as an educational tool showing that adding local ingredients doesn’t make a substantial difference to the cost of the final meal.

The calculators one for restaurants and another for institutional food service such as college dining halls, are both available for download from SCALE’s website.
