“A recipe for change through the re-localization of our food system – one tomato at a time.”
LOCALLY DELICIOUS, INC.
Locally Delicious, Inc., a 501(c)(3), organization, was founded in 2008 by six women in Humboldt County, California with the mission to support the development of a sustainable food system with community collaboration. Collaborators include: Food For People; Humboldt County Office of Education; Humboldt County Health and Human Services; the California Center for Rural Policy; Humboldt State University; the Arcata Art Institute (Arcata High School) and St. Joseph of Orange Hospital Foundation. Locally Delicious Inc.’s goal is to educate consumers on making healthy food choices that will improve the health of families, communities and our ecosystem.
Locally Delicious Inc. Books
Locally DeliciousTM: Recipes and Resources for Eating on the North Coast, the group’s first book, was published in 2009. More than a cookbook, Locally Delicious was written specifically for the communities of California’s Six Rivers bio-region (roughly corresponding to Humboldt, Del Norte and Trinity Counties), as a way to connect producers and consumers through recipes, stories, and extensive resources for life in a sustainable local food system. Now in its second edition, Locally Delicious has sold over 4,000 copies.
LunchBox EnvyTM An adventure in healthy eating for kids and children, the other Locally Delicious publication, is available as both a softcover and eBook. This how-to-guide and cookbook provides practical information on nutrition, meal planning, affordable healthy food, time-efficient basic cooking and on the bigger picture of building a more sustainable food system.
Locally Delicious Inc. Grants
Proceeds from the book sales are given in the form of grants to community organizations in the Six Rivers bio-region for projects to help eliminate food insecurity and educate children and adults about the importance of eating healthy, local food.
We have provided grants totaling over $12,600 including the following: Food for People (the local food bank), United Indian Health Services (Potowat Community Food Garden), Humboldt Office of Education, Humboldt County Breast Health Project's Cancer Fighting Kitchen, and the Humboldt Poultry Collective.
