To kick off 'Buy Local Challenge' week, the Governor and First Lady will host a 'buy local' cookout.
16 teams of state producers and chefs will prepare recipes showcasing the diversity of local products available. They were chosen in a contest on the Governor's website.
The best recipes were picked, and the creators were invited to the Governor's mansion to cook. This is the fifth year of the event.
The cookout is on Thursday, July 19, from 6pm - 8pm. It is by invite only.
'Buy Local Challenge' week is July 21 - 29. You are supposed to include at least one local item in every meal. It's an effort to keep money in the state and help our state's farmers grow.
The state has a section on its website to help you in the challenge. Click here , and you'll find the best places to shop locally where you live as well as recipes.
