Beyond the Equator was mentioned in the 2018 New Orleans Eat Local Challenge that starts June 1! The goal: For the 30 days of June, eat only foods that were grown, caught or raised within a 200-mile radius of New Orleans. The aim is to raise awareness of the nutritional, economic, environmental and cultural benefits of eating locally sourced foods.
A low-sugar, allergen-friendly peanut butter developed in New Orleans has earned national recognition.
