Wisconsin residents challenged to 'eat local'
Now through Sunday (Sept. 14), state employees and citizens are being asked to participate in the 2008 Wisconsin Eat Local Challenge. First Lady Jessica Doyle is honorary chairperson urging us to eat local and buy local (or at least 10 percent of our intake). The challenge is to encourage consumers and communities across the state to boost health and Wisconsin agriculture by looking for locally grown and produced products. Interesting idea; details at http://www.cias.wisc.edu/news/sign-up-for-wisconsin%E2%80%99s-eat-local-challenge-challenge-yourself-buy-local/
