2017 Eat Local Challenge
September’s our favorite month here at the Co-op. It’s the time of year when local produce is at its peak and a bounty of fresh, delicious local food fills our shelves. This year we are dedicating the last two weeks of September to local food and the farmers behind it.
We’re calling it our Eat Local Challenge because it’s our challenge to you to make local food a bigger part of your diet. Participating is easy: Pick up an Eat Local Challenge Passport and follow the challenge goals to collect stickers.
We are giving out some great prizes including a 200-dollar gift card to Open Harvest. As if you needed another reason to get out and enjoy local food!
