Join us for a 10-Day Local Food Challenge in August
Want to eat more local food and support your farmers?
For 10 days, eat food grown within 100 miles of home,
with just 10 exotics (foods from afar you can’t live without).
During the 2020 pandemic, we all experienced Empty Shelves Syndrome.
We saw the truth: grocery stores are the end point of the global, industrial-scale, just-in-time food system.
Grocery stores don’t have food. They stock food.
Join the 10-Day Local Food Challenge. Start your hunt for local food now. Plant a garden.
Find farm stands, farmers markets, food in the forest.
Go local for fun, pleasure and food security.
