Eat Local Challenge


County employees who participate in Eat Local Month can support the community AND be eligible for added prizes from the Wellness Program!

During September, Sustainable Connections celebrates National Fruit & Veggies-More Matters Month by encouraging everyone to explore and enjoy the bounty in Whatcom’s backyard, while also supporting the folks who grow, raise and prepare our food.

Each themed week comes with its own events, prizes, and ways to delight in local foods and flavors. Get all the details at
