Welcome to the Eat Local Challenge! 

The Eat Local Challenge is a 30-day celebration and exploration of New Orleans’ food and agricultural heritage. Each June, New Orleanians are challenged to support local farmers, fishers, food makers, restaurants, breweries, spirits handlers and food advocates. We encourage participants to support the local food system; by eating in restaurants, visiting your local farmers market, shopping at locally owned grocery stores, and recognizing the hard work and history of the people who made and continue to make New Orleans the best place to eat. Participants also look forward to a full month of parties, classes, tours, events, and a host of other opportunities to celebrate all the bounty of New Orleans!

Please note: Because of the continued effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 Eat Local Challenge events have been postponed.

Are you ready to make your mark on local food?

Eat Local Challenge Commitment to Equity

We ask that our participants join us in our commitment to cultural equity.

Cultural equity embodies the values, policies, and practices that ensure that all people—including but not limited to those who have been historically underrepresented based on race/ethnicity, age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion—are represented in the development of the Eat Local Challenge; the support of food system workers; the nurturing of accessible, thriving businesses for expression; and the fair distribution of programmatic, financial, and informational resources.
