CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD)- Lowcountry Local First is challenging the Charleston community to Eat Local during the month of April. The Eat Local Challenge asks people to shift $10 or more per week to locally grown and produced food. The group says this will help to cultivate a strong local economy by supporting Lowcountry farmers.

There are many ways to get involved: visit a farmer’s market, sign up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program, choose only locally grown produce at the grocery store, or visit a participating restaurant.

The challenge kicks off on Sunday, April 1st and goes until Monday, April 30th. Participants can sign up for the Lowcountry Local First app, and participate in #howieatlocal on Instagram to win weekly gift cards. Pledge to participate in the challenge here.
