100 Mile Food Challenge

You’ve read the books. You’ve seen the shows. You’ve been to the websites.
But what does eating locally REALLY look like?  

America’s health, and environment, are rapidly declining.  Now even our children are predicted to have shorter life spans.  Eating locally is a big step in rebalancing that.

  • WHAT IS IT?  A challenge to eat foods grown, produced and sold within 100 miles of your home
  • WHY?  More nutritious, tastes better, cheaper, environmentally friendly, & supports local economy
  • HOW? Plan to buy and consume a minimum of $10 in local foods weekly

 WHAT’S THE FINE PRINT?  We’re here to help you succeed ! We’re looking for those
interested in helping figure out how to blend better lifestyle choices with our fast paced
lifestyles. We will help you find your local food sources, provide recipes, guidance, andmoral support. We ask that you journal/write/email/blog your triumphs and trials (whichever is easiest for you) so that we can share, educate and encourage others.
