Eat Local Challenge


Edible Santa Barbara is sponsoring an Eat Local Challenge for the month of October. The Challenge encourages people to take a personal pledge to eat and drink local products October 1–31.

How to Participate in the Eat Local Challenge:

1) Eat only foods produced within a 100- or 150-mile radius of your home, or within the tri-county region, or within California.

2) Decide if you are going to make any exceptions (such as for coffee, tea or spices), but try to stay as local as possible.

3) Let Us Know How It’s Going:
Join the event on Facebook and post your progress on the Edible Santa Barbara page or the event page.

Use #EatLocalSB and @EdibleSB on Twitter or Instagram.
