Join the Farm to Fork Foodshed Challenge!

Every day, we consume multiple meals, each offering an opportunity to make a positive impact on our health, community, and environment. We can create a more sustainable and vibrant food system by choosing local ingredients.

In September, we invite you to participate in the Farm to Fork Foodshed Challenge. By joining this challenge, you commit to having at least ONE meal per week that is sourced only from local ingredients.

Why should you join?

  1. Support Your Local Economy: By choosing locally sourced ingredients, you are investing in local farmers, producers, and artisans. Your support helps to create thriving foodsheds that benefit the entire community.

  2. Health Benefits: Local ingredients are harvested at their peak, ensuring maximum freshness and nutritional value. Experience the vibrant flavors and health benefits that come from eating locally-grown food.

  3. Reduce Food Miles: By sourcing ingredients locally, we reduce the distance food travels to reach our plates and reduce carbon emissions while supporting a more sustainable food system.
