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.
Get involved in our expertly hosted Online Community as we help each other find food, cook it well, share our stories, make new friends, learn from experts and enjoy the serious fun of this short sprint with a big purpose.

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.
