Take Action

The 100-Mile Diet

Challenge yourself to only eat locally grown food!

The 100 mile diet was developed by Alisa Smith and JB Mackinnon, a Vancouver duo who decided to only eat food that was grown in a 100 mile radius from where they lived, for a year! They wrote about their experience in a book they published, The 100-Mile Diet: A Year of Local Eating.
Borrow the book from your public library and find out if you’re up for the challenge. Try it out for a week, ask a friend to join you. You can also write about your experience on a blog, or create a video diary.
