We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

The idea behind the Eat Local Challenge is to eat food produced no more than 250 miles from your home. --- Sounds easy enough, right? Well, not so fast, bucko. The average carrot on an American table traveled 1838 miles to get there. That's why Wasatch Community Gardens, People's Market, Slow Food Utah and the Swaner EcoCenter are working together to promote their annual Eat Local Challenge, which begins tomorrow, Sept. 12. 

The Eat Local Challenge includes a tomato sandwich party on Saturday at Wasatch Community Gardens, a kick-off event and crop swap and assorted other community events. For more information and tips to prepare you for the Eat Local Challenge, go to the local food challenge blog.
