The month-long locavore challenge ends with a state-wide potluck.
A locavore diet is full of fresh and delicious options, and the Northeast Organic Farming Association is challenging you to give a try for the month of September.
The third annual Locavore Challenge encourages local and sustainably grown produce with events, the 30-day challenge and the 250-mile challenge in which participants eat almost exclusively foods produced within a 250-mile radius.
New this year, the 30-day challenge is a month-long program with a different challenge and local food for each day. Participants can sign up for one day, one week, the whole month or any combination. A calendar with each daily challenge and the local food of the day can be found here.
Challenges range from the easy, like grilling local meat on Labor Day, to the more labor intensive, like lacto-fermenting.
The month-long celebration of local food ends with the Potluck Across NY. Groups from all over the city will gather to get the word out about the benefits of local foods.
