Foodie Families: Where To Go in Appalachia
New website helps families discover local food, farms and flavor on an interactive Appalachian food map.

Bon Appetit! Bon Appalachia!
As I told Good Day Charlotte in the video below, there's a new website that makes finding authentic Appalachian food, beverages, and festivals quick and easy. Simply hit this link www.visitappalachia.com and search for six categories in the 13-state region:

The Bon Appetit! Bon Appalachia! campaign is a project of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), an economic development agency whose mission is to be a strategic partner and advocate for sustainable community and economic development in Appalachia.
The online map includes the 283 sites found on the paper map AND an additional 350+ sites, which can be found at www.visitappalachia.com.
