Andrea’s Eat Local Food Stamp Challenge: Day 10

(EDITOR’S NOTE: North Kohala resident Andrea Dean calls herself a SocioEcoPreneur who partners with communities, businesses and non-profits on initiatives that enhance the island environment, economy and community. She is involved with the North Kohala Eat Locally Grown Campaign and has challenged herself to eat only local foods on a food stamp budget for the month of September 2011.)

I ate heartily-without spending money from my budget.

I spent Day 10 at Community Harvest Hawaii, a community gleaning project that harvests excess fruit and veggies in the community and processes them into a big community meal together.

One of the goals of the project is to increase access to locally grown foods for the community.

Everyone ate and took home local food, and we distributed 20 boxes through the Food Basket and Senior Nutrition Program.
