Grow the Movement of Local Eaters

We envision a food system in New Hampshire where people understand that their local food choices support thriving businesses, healthy communities, and vibrant working landscapes. Our network partners work together to create shared content, public messaging, educational opportunities, and events to inspire people to choose local food options and transform our communities for the better. We also promote programs and design creative ways to make local food choices accessible and possible for all.

Current Work

NH Eats Local Team

The NH Eats Local Team connects Granite Staters to New Hampshire agriculture and inspires them to support their local farmers, fishermen, and food producers. The team accomplishes this by telling the stories of our food system through collaborative public relations efforts, aligning on “eat local” messaging and shared content, providing educational opportunities, and hosting events. Learn more about the NH Eats Local Team here.

NH Eats Local Month

In the Granite State, we Live Free and Eat Local. Every August, network partners, eaters, farmers and food producers across New Hampshire join in for NH Eats Local Month, 31 days of rallying around the bounty of New Hampshire with events, contests, film screenings, local stories, and the eat local information we all crave! During the month, we also host the Live Free + Eat Local Challenge, in which Granite Staters are challenged to eat at or from five different New Hampshire farms or food businesses for a chance to win delicious local prizes. Learn more about NH Eats Local Month here.
