No one is suggesting limiting consumers choices. The article is suggesting checking out local produce and supporting local ag business. There are nutritional benefits. Not everyone will wish to go this route, not everyone can afford it. But if a person can, why would it be a bad thing? And I agree with the food voucher for Trumbull Health Dept. That's my tax dollars. I am emotionally attached to my tax dollars and want them to be spent in a much better way.

"They liked it so much in Warren that the Trumbull Health Department started offering their employees $5 vouchers to buy local foods as well," Perry said."

Yep, you just knew it had to come to this in a Democrat Party stronghold. Food stamps for government workers!

Could someone please direct me to the store that sells locally grown oranges, tangerines, cranberries, bananas, pineapple, or coffee? I don't believe it can be done.

Here's a better idea. Let's celebrate the free market economy by letting consumers decide what fruits and vegetables they want to buy, no matter where they come from. Who could object to that?
