Thursday, Nov. 24 - Rutland's third annual Thanksgiving
Localvore Challenge is back, and Sustainable Rutland and the
Rutland Area Farm and Food Link (RAFFL) are challenging the
community to eat more local food and, in the process, support local
farms and small businesses. This year, the first 75 participants to
sign up will get Localvore Toolkits, which include useful tips,
recipes and free coupons to sponsoring businesses.
Participants who sign up can choose to take either a "small bite"
or a "big bite." A small bite is a commitment to cook a localvore
dish for Thanksgiving (either to add to the meal or to bring to
someone else's). A big bite is a commitment to cook an entirely
localvore Thanksgiving meal. And don't worry it's easier than you
Anyone interested in taking the Localvore Challenge can sign up at
RAFFL's Everyday Chef blog at www.everydaychef.org, where they will
also find all the official rules as well as helpful localvore tips
