Join the Conversation
Eat Local for Thanksgiving may start with one thing, but it doesn't end there.
Download discussion cards and get the conversation going at holiday gatherings. Not everyone knows what it means to eat locally and why it's important. We've put together questions and topics to inspire lively conversation about where your food comes from and what food means to you.
Even kids get to be part of the conversation. Check our discussion and activity cards for children, created to spark conversation to help them think about our food traditions, where our food comes from and what foods are native or seasonally available here in Puget Sound and Washington state.
