What if you could only eat food from your pantry for a month?
Marty, a local resident, has decided to do just that, and she's keeping a blog so we can follow the experience. Here's what she says about the challenge:
"Last September, when our household was participating in NOFA-NY's Locavore Challenge, I kept thinking how different the challenge would look if we did it in the dead of winter. We talked about repeating the challenge in March, for comparison, but after thinking it over we decided on a slightly different challenge. Instead of restricting ourselves to local foods, we're going to do a Preparedness Challenge, and eat only food that we already have in stock.
- No stocking up in advance
- No grocery runs in March
- Use water and energy as usual
To give others the benefit of our experience, I'll be keeping a blog for the month:
