Eat Local for Thanksgiving is a campaign led by the Cascade Harvest Coalition to drive local purchases and eating in Washington this Thanksgiving. Currently Eat Local for Thanksgiving is in the running for support from the Brighter Planet Project Fund with the potential of winning up to $2500. What is the project fund?
Over the past few years, [the Project fund has] been continually inspired by the thousands of individuals and community organizations growing the climate movement from the ground up. The Brighter Planet Project Fund will provide seed money each month to motivated Americans for community projects that help people fight or adapt to climate change.
Brighter Planet members decide—as a community—which project to seed. The project(s) with the most votes at the close of a voting period receive grants, until the fund is exhausted.
Help support Eat Local and CHC by signing up at Brighter Planet and voting for the Eat Local campaign. Currently we’re in 3rd place with 39 votes.
Also, if you haven’t already taken the pledge to eat local this Thanksgiving, head over to eatlocalforthanksgiving.org and help CHC grow local communities, offset carbon emissions and reach their goal of 5,000 pledges.
