It goes without saying that all of us on this site love DC–the people, the culture, the history, and yes, the food. Eat Local First, a local food campaign started by Think Local First, showcases local restaurants and locally grown food. From July 9 – 16, locavores can take advantage of various food events and specials at restaurants participating in farm-to-table restaurant week. After the jump, you’ll find more information about the events and restaurants.

Get On This Bus: Fresh Food for All

Here’s a heartwarming video for a snowy day.

Yesterday, the BBC ran a piece on The Farm to Family Bus, a farmers market on wheels that serves neighborhoods in Richmond, often in low-income areas, that don’t have easy access to grocery stores and quality, organic food.

The piece also highlights Josh Viertel, president of Slow Food USA (and there’s a DC chapter), speaking to a group of slow food advocates in DC.

A great idea, that — to bring healthy food to those who may need it most.

Tomorrow, the Local Sixfortyseven food cart, which serves up local, sustainable foods, will be on Good Morning America Weekend as one of four finalists in its Best Food Carts Challenge.

You may have seen them before at the farmers market in Centreville or Reston, or at area wineries and events. I’ve not yet but love the concept, and a Washington Post review of their food makes my mouth water.

If you’re a fan, watch them tomorrow, then vote for them.
