If you have ever thought the words "eating local" and "affordable" couldn't occupy the same sentence, then this challeng is for you! During the week of April 23-29, Eat Local folks across the country are going to see if it is indeed possible to eat locally and sustainablly on the budget of the average American and YOU are invited to join in.
Now, it may seem that the hardest part of the challenge for those of us in Central New York may not be eating within the budget but eating at all. But never fear, as we get closer to the Challenge date I will be posting information about where to get local foods this early in the growing season without subsisting totally on microgreens.
With that said, I'm hoping a good number of us will participate. The dollar amounts given for the budget are national ones so everyone will have the same amount of money to spend whether they are in San Francisco or DeRuyter. I'm hoping that bodes well for us--but we'll see. If you think you'd like to participate post a comment here and let us know. And remember, you don't have to have a blog!
