Eat Local Week

Eat Local Week, is a fundraising week long event for Edible Austin, celebrating the abundance of local food and to raise money for Urban Roots, a youth development program that uses sustainable agriculture as a means to transform the lives of young people and to increase the access of healthy food in Austin. This season farm interns have raised over 25,136 pounds of produce —donating 40% of that to hunger relief and selling 60% at farmers' markets and farm stands run by the farm interns.

We suggest supporting two of our Community Partners, who are participating in Eat Local Week - Uchi and Uchiko.
Eat Local Week ends December 11, 2010.
