The Local Eating Challenge

Raise awareness and support food security in your community with the third annual Richmond Eats Local Eating Challenge!

Richmond Eats: The Local Eating Challenge

From September 25-30, 2017 we challenge our supporters, volunteers, and staff to only* eat produce grown here on Lulu island, meat raised by our farmers, and seafood caught by local fisherman while raising funds to help grow a robust Richmond food system.

How the Challenge works:

Supporters of local food and food security in Richmond sign up here as 'Foodies' and commit to fundraising and eating only Richmond-grown foods for one week.

Foodies can create a profile and will have a unique link for their sponsors.

Then the FUNdraising begins! Foodies reach out to their family, friends, and networks and request donations towards their efforts in taking the challenge. Between September 25-30, 2017, Foodies will eat only* food grown in Richmond.

Foodies will receive recipe ideas, tips, and support, including the Richmond Eats Local Eating Guide containing a map to Richmond farms.

Why Take The Local Eating Challenge?

Eating local is about bringing communities closer to the roots of our food production systems, nourishing not only the belly, but also our relationships with one another and the land that sustains us. All funds raised go directly to inspiring a robust Richmond food system through education, advocacy, and community building initiatives.

Join us!

Become a Foodie and take part in the challenge, make a donation, and join the conversation through Facebook(@RichmondFood) and Twitter(@rfoods).

*Each participant is allowed three exceptions to allow for dietary needs or to facilitate cooking (e.g. cooking oil, salt, and/or a grain). We will also allow participants who don't live in Richmond to eat from their own gardens. Please check with your doctor in advance if you have any health concerns.

RFSS is inspiring a robust local food system through education, advocacy, and communication building initiatives. To learn more about projects we are working on visit www.richmondfoodsecurity.org.

Thank you for your support!
