THE LOCAL FOOD PROJECT
‘The Local Food Project’ is an inspiring new book exploring the power of growing and eating local food. Incorporating drawings, photography and text, it is the culmination of three years of work by the artist. ‘The Local Food Project’ charts the journey of the average BLT sandwich which has around 45 ingredients from around the world. It asks us to think about how we eat and who pays the price? Is there any such thing as cheap food? The artist Lisa is concerned about the fact that we are importing so much of our food and losing the capacity to be self sufficient, despite what we know about climate change and carbon footprint. The book is creatively presented ( journal style) and is filled with ideas and actions for people who think global and want to act local. The book is launched at 7pm on the 12th November at the Listowel Food Fair (Listowel Arms Hotel) Listowel Food Fair

The 30 Day Local Food Challenge takes place every September. It’s a great way to eat good food, support local food producers and raise awareness about community resilience, climate change and carbon footprint.
This year, with the support of Transition Kerry and other groups, lots of people joined the challenge.
This community page has been created to share ideas, menus and the experience of eating food only from the island of Ireland…
