Eat Local NOLA is partnering with StayLocal for the 7th Annual New Orleans Eat Local Challenge

The Eat Local Challenge is a 30-day advocacy campaign where New Orleanians are challenged to only eat foods grown, caught, or raised within a 200-mile radius. The goal of the challenge is to raise the awareness of the nutritional, economic, environmental, and cultural benefits of eating locally sourced foods. 

As part of the campaign, Eat Local NOLA and StayLocal are hosting a Restaurant Challenge that encourages New Orleanians to dine at restaurants that support local food systems. Participating restaurants have prepared at least one dish made of local ingredients for Eat Local Challenge participants so they can dine out while staying true to the challenge. 

The Eat Local Challenge participant who dines at the most participating Restaurants during the month of June will win a New Orleans Staycation: a one night stay at  Hotel Storyville, plus a $200 gift certificate to a participating restaurant of their choice! Additional prizes awarded for 2nd and 3rd places.

- Post a photo of your meal, tag @eatlocalnola, @staylocal, and the restaurant, and include  #RestaurantChallengeNOLA
- Or submissions can be made via email to
- Contest ends Thursday June 25th at midnight and submissions after that time will not be counted.

This year StayLocal is changing up our SourceNOLA finale event! Instead of listening to a few local experts speak, we’re going to see how many experts we can get in a room. For this night of trivia, we’ll break into teams and test your knowledge on business topics from historic New Orleans businesses, to professional etiquette, to national economic trends. There will be prizes, music, food, networking and area business-to-business (B2B) businesses will be tabling to show off their services.
