Welcome to the Montana Local Food Challenge!

Eat something local every day

Are you up to the challenge? This August, we are challenging you to eat local food every day. We’ll also be giving you a fun new challenge every week, encouraging you to ask for more local foods in your community and to help support Montana agriculture in a bigger way.

Why local?  Because local foods are good for our health, our climate, and our community.  Local foods:

  • – build community and local economies.
  • – support local farm and ranch families.
  • – preserve genetic diversity.
  • – protect our regional food security.
  • – taste better and is often fresher.
  • – preserve open space.
  • – support a clean environment and benefits wildlife.

The Montana Local Food Challenge is an opportunity for individuals, families and businesses to challenge their current buying and eating habits and make a commitment to eating locally while learning about the myriad of benefits to be gained from localizing our thinking. Take the Challenge!
