Eat Local Challenge

September 2, 2011 at 12:52 am Leave a comment

Kanu Hawai‘i’s Eat Local Challenge will commit thousands of islanders in the effort to build a more sustainable, secure, and healthy local food system. Building on the successes of the past two years, the Eat Local Challenge is expanding from one week to the entire month of September. The month will feature weekly mini-challenges:

Week 1: Education: Learn about Hawai’i’s local food system
Week 2: Grow your own: Plant/harvest local foods at home and in the community
Week 3: Choose local: Find local food at restaurants and markets
Week 4: Eat strictly local: Strive to eat only locally grown foods for one week

Change

Personal Change. Join the Eat Local Challenge by making one or more of the commitments below to support locally grown food.

Policy Change. Individuals who participate in the Challenge will receive information about food policy issues that relate to their personal actions/commitments. They will be encouraged to advocate on local food and agriculture policies, and will also be provided information about where candidates in the 2012 and 2014 elections stand with respect to food policy.

Corporate Change. Restaurant Partners are asked to offer menu items during the Eat Local Challenge and beyond using local ingredients. Retail Partners are asked to make changes in the way they source, display and market local food items. Interested in partnering with us?

Sustain
The month of September is a time to focus our collective attention and commit to building a more sustainable, secure, and healthy local food system. We will continue to work together year-round to make change in our own lives and in these islands.

Here’s a list of Maui locations and a place to add your own.
