We need your help raising money to create activities for our kick-off week, July 9-16, of the Eat Local First Campaign!

Eat Local First DC is a local food campaign created by Think Local First DC beginning with a week-long celebration of local food in the Washington DC area. The focus of the week will be on local farms, local restaurants and the organizations and people that are making locally-grown food more accessible in the DC community.

The goal of the campaign:

1) Create programs that link local farmers with local business.

2) Promote local businesses that are sourcing locally.

The week:

From July 9 to 16, 2011, you can enjoy an array of events that celebrate the local food movement. From an urban foraging adventure, to vegan/raw non-cooking demonstrations and a rocking farm-to-street party, Think Local First DC aims to inspire restaurants and consumers to source food locally whenever possible.

July 9-16: Eat Local First Restaurant Week
Independent restaurants across DC will offer specials on dishes with ingredients sourced from local farms. Savor local meats, seafood, cheeses, breads, herbs, produce and other locally-grown products.

July 9: Tour of Arcadia: Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture

July 10: Local Lamb Roast at Local 16

July 14: Raw Non-Cook-Off at FRESHFARM Market by the White House

July 15: Eat from the Street-Urban Foraging Adventure

July 15: Edible Garden Tour

July 16: Farm-to-Street Block Party

The Money: Will be used in creating top-notch events for the kick-off week.  Any excess will go to programs that support the campaign
