Take the Eat Local Challenge!

I’m so excited to be partnering with Local First on the Eat Local Challenge again this year! It’s a great way to learn more about eating local food. The first event is the 10×10 pledge.

THE 10×10 PLEDGE: I pledge to be a part of creating a healthy and sustainable food system by shifting $10 of my weekly food budget for 10 weeks, August 28-October 30, toward local food sources.

The Pledge starts on August 28th and Local First will send out weekly email info packets to all 10 X 10 Pledgers with resources, great places to get your local food, recipes, special deals, and more!

The primary purpose of the pledge is to get people to start eating locally. However, since I’ve been at this awhile, I will be trying to find something NEW to spend $10 on each week of the challenge. I won’t be counting my regular trips to local restaurants, farmers markets, or breweries. However, I WILL be sharing tips and resources on this blog and at The Rapidian. Whether you are brand new to the idea of eating locally (maybe you just read this blog for the beer news?) or have been at this for years, I hope you will join us in this endeavor.

So, what are you waiting for? Click the square below to take the pledge!
