We had an amazing Saturday of fruit gleaning, collecting and donating over 250 kg of apples and blueberries to the food bank. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who made a hot Saturday pick so enjoyable.

About the challenge:

Raise awareness and support food security in our community with the fourth annual Local Eating Challenge!

Eating local is about bringing communities closer to the roots of our food production systems, nourishing not only the belly but also our relationships with one another and the land that sustains us. All funds raised go directly to inspiring a robust Richmond food system through education, advocacy, and community building initiatives.

 

The Local Eating Challenge

 

From September 22nd -29th, 2018 we challenge our community, volunteers, and staff to eat as much produce grown here on Lulu island, meat raised by our farmers, and seafood caught by local fisherman while raising funds to help grow a robust Richmond food system.

 

Become a Foodie and take part in the challenge, make a donation, and join the conversation through Facebook(@RichmondFood) and Twitter(@rfoods).

 

Remember to use #eatlocalrichmond

How the Challenge works:

 

Three ways to participate

 

  1. Self-directed – You select a level outlined below, register with us by emailing director@richmondfoodsecurity.orgGet sponsorship and use social media using our hashtag #eatlocalrichmond

 

The four levels of participation are:

 

    1. Golden beet – all food during the challenge needs to be locally sourced
    2. Silver thyme – 5 ingredients per day during the challenge needs to be locally sourced
    3. Sage – 3 ingredients per day during the challenge needs to be locally sourced
    4. Weekend warrior – eat locally for two consecutive Saturdays only

 

Then the FUNdraising begins! Foodies reach out to their family, friends, and networks and request donations towards their efforts in taking the challenge between September 22nd – 29th, 2018, Foodies will eat as much food grown in Richmond based on their participation level as possible.

 

                    Join our team, register with us by emailing director@richmondfoodsecurity.org
