IPSWICH: 30-mile Food Challenge- 18/19 August

Transition Ipswich, working with Transition Woodbridge, have been gearing up to organise a 30-Mile Local Food Challenge this September, The challenge participants will be embarking upon is to eat only food that has been produced and processed within a 30 mile radius of the centre of Ipswich – for 30 whole days. Here’s a rough idea of the challenge radius.

We want you to join in with us and find out all about the exciting food available locally, which we’ll be mapping up until September and beyond to help you find sources of local food. Let’s support local producers and eat more of what’s grown right here in Suffolk!
