The challenge: Take 4-5 weeks to be intentional about eating food that comes from your local area.  (you get to choose what ‘local’ means to you – we recommended within 100 miles if possible, striving for 60-80% of your food coming from these local sources)  We recommend choosing food grown organically (with or without the official label) whenever possible.

After a week of scouting and preparing, the active challenge weeks include the following activities:





We will share with each other our go to recipes, shopping and food preservation tips, and provide each other with support along the way.
