It’s Eat Local Month, an annual campaign to get residents of the Lowcountry thinking more about where the food they eat each and every day comes from. Organized by Lowcountry Local First, Charleston’s advocate for a strong local-based economy, the campaign takes advantage of the abundance of fresh, local produce that’s in season at this time of the year to help spread the word about the importance of sourcing food locally when possible.
Get involved by taking the Eat Local Challenge! It’s not too late to start. Simply download the Lowcountry Local First app, sign up and get started. You pledge to shift a specific amount of your daily food purchases to local items and use the app to track your progress. Here at Ted’s, we’ll be offering local items in the prepared food case all month long to make it easy for you to focus on choosing local. If you’re not sure, just ask!
