By cultivating local connections among consumers and producers of fresh, sustainable food, Eat Well Guide helps you hack your diet through access to healthy locally grown food. Together with the spirit of independent farmers, businesses and other socially responsible partner organizations, Eat Well Guide’s collaborative technology harnesses the power of the web to effect social, environmental and economic change, mapping the route to a more sustainable food system.
Through crowdsourced participation, Eat Well Guide offers free online tools for finding locally grown and sustainably produced food, including a trip planner and downloadable guides. Consumers can direct food dollars toward 25,000+ listings providing an alternative to the industrial food system.
Our collaborations with hundreds of civic and educational advocacy organizations as well as rural and urban agricultural groups (including Slow Food USA, Animal Welfare Approved, Edible Communities, Farmers Market Coalition) are changing the way people eat – one bite at a time.
Eat Well Guide offers free resources, maps and directories for finding fresh, locally grown and sustainably produced food in the United States and Canada.
