1. Eat 40% Local Challenge

YOU can help create a vibrant local food system by participating in the Eat 40% Local Challenge!

The Corvallis Sustainability Coalition defines “local” as food that is grown, made, or processed in a six-county area (Benton, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, and Polk). This definition is called “Local 6”.

One of the Food goals of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition is 40% local by 2020. That’s an ambitious goal, since the current estimate is just 7%. But considering how much food is grown and produced in the Local 6 area throughout the year, it’s entirely doable to eat 40% local. We hope you'll join us in this challenge!
