I knew that once I started writing about local food, the movement was well beyond its tipping point. What I didn't know was that Canada's Food Network was planning its own new reality show called The 100 Mile Challenge. From their website:
The 100 Mile Challenge challenges six families to survive for 100 days on food that originates within a 100 mile radius of their home. Through intimate, often funny, sometimes painful, always entertaining, personal stories, we'll witness exactly what happens when this extraordinary food-focused experiment unfolds. The 100 Mile Challenge will get all of Canada talking about what we eat and where exactly it comes from.
