Local Eats Week is an annual event that encourages local restaurants to source more of their ingredients from the Local 6 area. Local 6 refers to products grown, produced, or processed by farms or businesses owned and operated within the six counties touching and including Benton County (Benton, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, and Polk). The broader goal is to increase the percentage of locally produced food that is consumed by the community, in order to create a vibrant and secure local food system.
Organized by the Food Action Team’s Local 6 Connection.
