Can you eat only local food for a week?
Folks who did it last fall challenge others to join them
Portlanders Jason and Kim Lucey devoted one whole week last fall to eating only local food, and they're trying it again - and inviting others to join them.
The Luceys have challenged others to take the '7 day 100% Local Challenge' from April 18 to 26.
The rule: participants must only eat food that is grown and produced locally. Their goal is to spur people to move away from industrialized food, and to increase awareness of the local food movement.
