Join us in October when our global network of local eaters pledges to eat, for 10-days, food grown within 100-miles of home, with just 10-exotics (foods from afar we can’t live without). Click here to Join our List. It’s cost and spam free!
Better yet, become a member of our community.
Our Online Community is where we help each other find food, cook it well, share our stories, make new connections, learn from experts and enjoy the serious fun of this short sprint with a big purpose. Let’s shift how we eat – healthier, fresher, more just for workers and fair to farmers and good for the earth – and shift the systems that feed us.
For 10 Days
(October 1-10, or anytime you can)

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.
Changed eaters are better food system game-changers. Together…
Does the 10-Day Local Food Challenge do any of this?
No, committed eaters do. The Challenge gets us more committed.
Heal your relationship with food.
Take charge of your diet.
Be nourished by food that breathes the same air, drinks the same water and soaks up the same sun you do.
Commit to your place on earth.
Create a vibrant food culture.
Liberate yourself from almost total dependency on a food system whose bottom line is profit.
