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
