Local Roots Market and Café is issuing a “Thanksgiving Locavore Challenge”. The goal is to encourage people to source the ingredients for their feast locally, cook, and get to know the story behind their food.
What does local mean? It’s not just where the ingredients are bought, but where they come from. Many people use 100 miles as a guideline, but Local Roots is challenging people to know the sources of their Thanksgiving Dinner.
“There is a story behind everything we eat,” says Betsy Anderson, Local Roots Board Member. “We think that story is important to folks feeling the thanks this holiday is about.”
Interested participants can join and share the event from the Local Roots Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/events/1636518033303555/. Participants are encouraged to share recipes, photos, ingredient sources, and thoughts on the meaning of the holiday.
This turkey is challenging you…to get to know the story behind your food this Thanksgiving!
