Transportation
Transportation Other
Description of Action: 
Valente's works to source as many items from local vendors within a 20 mile radius of our store. By switching produce vendors, 168 miles have been cut out roundtrip each week. By switching vendors for our specialty products, we have cut out 88 roundtrip miles weekly from food deliveries. At the time of writing this, these practices have been in place for four months. The savings listed below will reflect four months and not a full 12 months. The money saved estimate is the cost of gas savings based upon an average of an estimated 10 miles per gallon that a delivery truck gets and an estimated $2.91 cost of fuel per gallon.
