2017 Local Food Month

While every month is local food month for some of us, the effort to draw focused attention to all of the wonderful local products is especially noticeable in September.  All over the country people are celebrating the bounty that comes from their region and in Humboldt we are are rich with all types of food in the month of September.

Years ago when the Eat Local Challenge began I participated and, excluding only a handful of ingredients, was able to complete the challenge.  For me, that challenge just helped me to think more consciously about the foods that I eat — and to develop a plan for acquiring those foods (like albacore tuna, canning 100 lbs of whole fish each year), and to incorporate them throughout the year.

There are many activities planned this year and you can go to the website to check them out.

Listen to the interview here with Ivy North (NCGA – Farmers Market) and Ann Anderson (Locally Delicious).
