The article deals with Bon Appetit Management Company's Eat Local Challenge in the U.S. The challenge requires Bon Appetit unit managers at 300 accounts across the nation to develop menus using ingredients coming to them from no farther than 150 miles away. Local sourcing is just one of Bon Appetit's many initiatives to operate more responsibly with respect to how food is produced (grown or raised), who produces it (local farmers or far-off corporations) and how it is handled in the kitchen.
