Do you want to eat better?
Do you like a challenge?
Do you want a food system we can all trust, that’s fair to farmers and healthy for everyone?

Join our global network of local eaters who challenge ourselves to eat food grown within 100-miles of home, with just 10-exotics (foods from afar we can’t live without), for 10 days in October.

Will you join us?

Doing the Challenge, you will wake up to yourself as an eater, to your habits and assumptions, to your rusty cooking skills and the flavors of fresh, to what grows where you are and who grows it – and to the forces at play that keep local food marginalized and local farmers struggling to make a living.

And you will change.

The Game Changer

Changed eaters are better food system game-changers. Together…

  • We’ll create more demand for local food.
  • We’ll be (eat) the change we want to see in the world. Integrity makes waves.
  • We’ll know more about the barriers our local farmers face – and want to help remove them.
  • We’ll connect with neighbors – to share food and work together.
  • We’ll organize and educate and start new enterprises – maybe even a farm.
  • We’ll be leaders and inspire others to change
  • We’ll look back in 10 years at regenerated local food systems and greater local prosperity and healthier kids eating less junk food and fewer diet related diseases in our communities – and know we were part of it.

Does the 10-Day Local Food Challenge do any of this?
No, committed eaters do. The Challenge gets us more committed.
