Establish a Plan
Start making your plans to eat as local as possible! If you're new to the game, start with something simple like switching out your morning coffee or tea for a local option or choosing Louisiana rice for any home cooking.
Look out for tags at your local grocery stores indicating items are local! Even large grocery stores carry local produce.
Get even fresher by shopping at your local farmers market or small grocer, or signing up for a local food box (or CSA). Some produce boxes are available for delivery right to your door!
Eat at local restaurants (bonus points if they also source and support local farmers, fishers, ranchers, and food producers!), and always keep a lookout for an opportunity to make your mark on the local food scene. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
To maximize your involvement, attend one of the many, many events! (This year due to Covid-19 all in person events have been postponed.)
And remember: eating local isn’t just a game for one month, it’s a lifestyle that will impact your life and health and that of our city!
