Eat Local Month Celebrates Summer’s Bounty




As a part of Massachusetts Eat Local Month, restaurants across the state will be featuring locally sourced menu items throughout August. In addition, Sustainable Business Network will be hosting a film screening of Forgotten Farms, which tells the story of the New England dairy industry in today’s food and agricultural landscape on August 7, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Brattle Theatre, in Cambridge. Other events include ALLocal dinners and socials at Mei Mei Restaurant, a tour of Red’s Best’s facility at the Boston Fish Pier, and more.

Massachusetts Eat Local Month is a statewide campaign that educates both restaurants and the general public on the benefits of sourcing food from within our local food system—using ingredients from Massachusetts first. The campaign is designed to encourage people to “eat local” whether they are dining out or shopping at the farmers’ market or grocery store.
