Eat Local Month Olympic Peninsula
September 1 @ 8:00 AM – September 30 @ 5:00 PM
Join Eat Local First Olympic Peninsula collaborative partners as they support and share the work of local farmers, fishers, ranchers, chefs, restaurateurs, grocers and others supporting our local food system during Eat Local First month each September. Follow @eatlocalfirstolypen on social media during Eat Local Month to take your taste buds on a journey through the farmlands, seas, markets, and restaurants of the Olympic Peninsula.
The Collaborative will be highlighting ways to enjoy local food in Clallam and Jefferson counties and opportunities to get out on a farm this September. Throughout the month the local community will be engaged through social media and on the ground events & activities to learn about farmers and producers in the region, where to buy local products, and to how help individuals and families access fresh healthy food. The campaign will showcase food grown in the region and provide creative ways our local community can support everyone who helps bring local food from the farm and sea to our forks.
We encourage you to participate in our Eat Local Challenge by engaging in activities on our Eat Local Challenge card. Then take photos of activities you engage in to both learn about and support our local food system, post and share on social media tagging us (@eatlocalfirstolypen) and also using the hashtag #eatlocalfirstolypen. You will not only have fun and tasty adventures, but you will be helping us share the word about how great our local farmers and local food businesses are . And you might even receive a gift by filling out our survey as part of the challenge.
