We here at the Eat Local Challenge blog are excited to welcome a couple groups of people who are taking the Penny-Wise Eat Local Challenge with us this week.
The folks at Sustainable Table, who are the amazing creators of the Eat Well Guide and The Meatrix have joined together to take the challenge this week. At least four staff are taking the challenge with us from New York City. Head on over to their blog to see how they're doing. And while you're at it, check out the Eat Well Guide, which is a nationwide database that will help you find stores, restaurants, and markets near you that support family farmers. It's a useful tool to have when you're trying to eat local.
Another group taking the challenge is The Greenleaf Market, an online marketplace for agricultural producers and buyers. They're going all the way, including giving up coffee. You can read more about their week on the Greenleaf Community blog.
