Local Eats Week/Month is an annual event organized by the Food Action Team of the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition to encourage local restaurants to source more of their ingredients from the Local 6 area (Benton, Lane, Lincoln, Linn, Marion, and Polk counties). The broader goal is to increase the percentage of locally produced food that is consumed by the community in order to create a vibrant and secure local food system.
