Eat Local + StayLocal Restaurant Challenge
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. Rules: - Post a photo of your meal, tag @eatlocalnola, @staylocal, and the restaurant, and include #RestaurantChallengeNOLA - Or submissions can be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org - Contest ends Thursday June 25th at midnight and submissions after that time will not be counted. More info on the challenge can be found at EatLocalNOLA.org.
