If you were asked to eat only locally for two weeks, could you do it? At first thought it seems pretty manageable, but what about everyday staples such as coffee, chocolate, spices and olive oil?
Chicago's Green City Market Locavore Challenge started Wednesday – participants pledge to eat only locally (Illinois and surrounding states) grown and produced food for two full weeks. There are many restaurants participating in the challenge who are only serving locally grown foods, some of them are even donating $1 per dish to Green City Market programs and others are hosting special events.
Would you, could you make the pledge to eat only locally for two weeks? Would you need to make any exceptions?
