In a nutshell 24 people have spent £3,800 into the local food economy over the last six months here in the Lancaster and Morecambe area. Thats with over 80 local food businesses. Of those the most spent with, 30 businesses in all, have demonstrated that they are re-spending that money with othe rlocal suppliers.
To put this in context our local economy is our spending system with money constantly entering and leaving the system (imported and exported money) all the time. The more we can identify and plug the gaps the longer that money can work for local people and the local economy.
