2016 Eat Local Challenge Calendar of Events

The Eat Local Challenge is more than just 30 days of eating locally. It is your chance to learn more about local food production from some of the best growers and food artisans in our region!

The month of June is packed full of great events allowing you to explore the local food and the green scene in Southeastern Louisiana.  Classes are free or offered at a discount to participants of the challenge.


We are still assembling the dates and will have all of the times costs and details in place soon.

If you have a local food related class that you would like us to organize or if you have a topic you would like to teach email us at aubrey@eatlocalneworleans.com.
