Local Foods Week 2010 • October 2-8

From Eat Local Challenge website: 


Make a commitment to local food. 

In conjunction with Local Matters’ Local Foods Week from October 2-8th, we’re kicking off the Eat Local Challenge and giving Central Ohio residents another way to support their region’s local small farms, sustainable agriculture and locally produced foods. Through fun and healthy challenges that will last year round, you can help us…
  1. Activate the community to eat local.
  2. Teach all ages about the importance of knowing where your food comes from and making healthy choices.
  3. Support Ohio’s resources, from farmers to not-for-profits like Local Matters, who are dedicated to making local food accessible to all.
GET STARTED: All you have to do is fill out the ELC Pledge Card, committing to three or more ways you plan to “eat local” this month. Whether you pledge to cook a meal using local ingredients, patronize a favorite local restaurant or volunteer to help teach kids about local food, we appreciate your support!

Submitting your card will make you eligible for great prizes like a 26 Week Subscription to the Greener Grocer’s Weekly Fresh Market Bag, cooking classes and a subscription to Edible Columbus or a full pantry makeover with local foods. Check out the Pledge Card for more ideas on how to eat local.
