Francesca Agosti (Katoomba, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: I have wanted to purchase locally made produce and products for a very long time. I am also passionate about reducing the amount of packaging I am purchasing as a byproduct of buying food but have been stumped as to how to do this. I am very keen for ideas on this topic.

Gabi Brown (Drummoyne, Sydney, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: i love the idea that something as ingrained as our diets can be an agent of change to support our community, the earth, and those who aim to bring delicious and cruelty free food to us out of the passion of their own hearts. by putting my money towards that, i hope to assist in making it a more mainstream idea for us to focus on how we're living and how we can be the best and most loving people we can be

Laura Pires da Mata Costa (Parkville, VIC)

Why I'm doing it: I am vegetarian so its already an advantage! However I have always wondered from where my food come from! The world is full of people! How food is provided to all of us?! Its a hard challenge! And its gets even harder because of the waste - a lot of food is threw away! I want to eat locally because it is a way to save energy and cooperate with local markets! Eating organic is also really important because our body and Earth are our "home" and we need to provide the best for them!

Roberta (Maroubra, NSW)

Why I'm doing it: I truly love food, and I think that the connection between a strong body and a healthy soul can be found in what we choose to nourish our body with. The concept of a community nurturing and lovingly caring for the produces they bring to the table, I believe reperesents the basis for a better future, where respect for nature itself and our wellbeing go hand in hand rather than exploiting our planet with no mercy. I love the ideal of communal sharing, where that element of humanity is instilled into the sourching and preparation process, with the ultimate goal of a greater good.

Rose & Tanya (Esperance, WA)

Why I'm doing it: We love a little food challenge! Eating healthy and wholesome as well as sustainably is a big part of our family life and our Ecolosophy business ethos too. We live in WA, hundreds of kilometres from a city, farmers' market, dairy or market garden but we grow heaps of our own food and swap lots with friends. Rose has been 'big two' supermarket free for three years now which is a pretty mean feat living in a small regional town. We're hoping the local harvest challenge will push our creativity with the food we have available even further. Good luck everyone!
