What is the Eat Local Challenge?
Eat locally grown and and produced food every day at home or in locally-opwned restaurants for the entire month of May - that's it!
You can do that, can't you? Are you up for the Challenge?
This year’s EAT LOCAL CHALLENGE KICKOFF events
will provide a short course in cooking.
Sponsored in part by FORGAGE.
Each of the four Kickoff events will teach cooking basics
using seasonal food, share tips to save time and money,
and offer samples of all the dishes.
