The idea behind the Eat Local Challenge is to eat food produced no more than 250 miles from your home. --- Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not so fast, bucko. The average carrot on an American table traveled 1838 miles to get there. That's why Wasatch Community Gardens, People's Market, Slow Food Utah and the Swaner EcoCenter are working together to promote their annual Eat Local Challenge, which begins tomorrow, Sept. 12. 

The Eat Local Challenge includes a tomato sandwich party on Saturday at Wasatch Community Gardens, a kick-off event and crop swap and assorted other community events. For more information and tips to prepare you for the Eat Local Challenge, go to the local food challenge blog.
