Take the Eat Local Challenge!

Local Lucy

When you take the challenge, you are making a difference in preserving our local agricultural system.  Not only does local food mean better taste and more nutritional value, but supporting  family farmers builds a stronger local economy and lightens the ecological costs of long-distance food transportation.  By eating locally, we also learn about our "food-shed" and the way that family farms connect us to the land and preserve our valley's rural character. 

When you pledge, you will be entered into a drawing to win a fabulous local food gift basket along with gift certificates to great restaurants. When you complete and return your Eat Local Week Passport, you will be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift certificate to the Rogue Valley Local Foods online farmers market.
