Eat Local Challenge
Want to eat more local foods but not sure where to begin, when to begin, or how to stick to it? Look no further, aspiring locavore! Here’s a fun, healthy and easy way to go local.
This September, you can kick-start your quest to eat more local by joining the “Eat Local America” challenge, presented by food co-ops around the country. This national challenge celebrates and supports the growing interest and passion to eat (mostly) locally grown or produced food – inviting individuals to try to consume as much local food as they can.
When is the Tucson Eat Local America Challenge?
The Food Conspiracy Co-op is hosting an Eat Local America challenge for two weeks in September, a time of bounteous harvest in Southern Arizona. The exact dates of the challenge are September 15th-September 30th — but you can start sooner if you want.
