Chefs for the Marcellus congratulates Don’t Frack Maryland campaign and the scores of farmers, restaurant owners, chefs, beverage and food producers, retailers and others who helped achieve a multi year moratorium on fracking! As in New York and California, the professional food community of Maryland is taking specific action as a group to protect water, soil, livestock and human health from fracking. From their letter to Maryland legislators,
To those of us in Maryland’s food community, having access to clean water and aquifers is critical. Agriculture, fishing, restaurants, tourism, and food and beverage production make up a vital economic network in our state, and we rely on clean water and healthy soil to cultivate our local bounty and succeed in our businesses.
