Through Nov. 14: Local Eats Month 2020, Corvallis. Savor the bounty of autumn with an assortment of treats prepared by local restaurants during this celebration of restaurants that source local products all year. Some dishes have been created especially for Local Eats Month. Participants through Saturday include Brass Monkey, Castor, New Morning Bakery and Tacovore. 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 consumed by the community in order to create a vibrant and secure local food system. RSVP to the Facebook event to "meet" each restaurant, and follow @sustainablecorvallis on Instagram.
