It’s one thing to voice support for farmers. But farmers don’t get actual support without people putting dollars where their mouths are.

The “I’m good for 20″ campaign aims to inspire people to dedicate a portion of their food spending to a direct source for local, fresh food.

People make this commitment to themselves and in return, are rewarded the bounty of their purchases. Any person who displays the “I’m good for 20″ logo, has taken the Oath of Nourishment:

I [state your name]
do hereby promise,
as long as I need food to survive,
to allocate at least $20
of my weekly grocery spending
to a direct-to-customer source,
such as a farm stand, farmer’s market, or CSA.
