Eat Local, Feel Good

I'm glad I stumbled onto this just in time--today is the first day of the Wisconsin Eat Local Challenge, organized by the UW-Madison Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems. It's a pretty straight-forward challenge: sign up, spend at least 10% of your food budget on things grown and produced right here in Wisconsin (or within a 100 mile radius of your home), keep track of it on a handy scorecard provided at the site, then submit your final tally via a short survey. There's a small prize incentive, but really, what more incentive is there than support of local farms and producers? Plus, delicious food. I can hear my belly rumbling now....

For resources on where to find local food in your area, check out the Savor Wisconsin website, or use the guide on the WELC site itself.
