Sign up to take the Aquidneck Food Challenge!
September 1-10, 2016
We've been hearing a lot of questions about the inaugural Aquidneck Food Challenge – "Do I have to give up coffee?" (No!), "But I already eat a lot of island-grown food, so why should I sign up?" (To be part of a community effort to raise awareness of local food!)
The challenge is all about raising the stakes on your local eating, whatever that means to you. There are no strict rules – and no successes or failures!
It is simply this: however much island-grown food you're eating right now – raise YOUR stakes from September 1st-10th. Maybe you're already eating seasonal bounty like corn and tomatoes – why not try incorporating Aquidneck-raised protein sources like chicken and beef too? Maybe you've been promising yourself a fishing trip and grill-out all summer – get it on the calendar for early September! Or maybe you're ready to take the plunge and eat only island-grown and Bay-caught food for the duration. It's up to you!
By signing up for the Aquidneck Food Challenge, you'll be joining a community local food adventure. We'll be sharing recipes, photos, resources, and gathering data from participants – all in the interest of growing our island food system so it serves you better.
With love and solidarity,
Bevan, Liza, and Tara
