1. Create your profile and help us promote your local food program or business
Complete your online profile by creating an event announcing yourself as a Local Food Challenge Partner! Once you complete your registration, your program or business profile will appear under Where Local? on the Local Food Challenge website. In Where Local? registered participants will be able to easily find and share your program or business.
Tip: Make sure to add your logo, your website address, social media links, and street address so participants can find you.
2. Post events and/or incentives to the website
Consider creating events and/or incentives to encourage participants to (re)discover your local food business or program and/or to choose more local food. Once you know the details, post your event and/or incentive on the Local Food Challenge website: Login, go to “My Account” and “Post an Event”. Your event and/or incentive will appear in Events & More.
Not sure what to do? Here are some ideas:
- Collaborate with other local food businesses to host a local food meal.
- Offer a tour of your local food business or initiative.
- Feature local ingredients or a local food meal in your restaurant.
- Coordinate a local food tasting or cooking demonstration.
- Offer a local food or gardening workshop
- Create a discount or other promotion to clients who mention the LFC.
Tip: Manage your event registration with Eventbrite. Eventbrite allows event organizers to plan, promote, and sell tickets to events (event management) and publish them across Facebook, Twitter, and other social-networking tools directly from the site’s interface.
