100 Mile Challenge

LIVING CHANNEL – Thursdays from 20 August, 8.30pm

Six Canadian families take eating fresh food to the extreme, as they accept the challenge to eat only food produced within a 100-mile radius of their homes, for 100 days. The families’ creativity is tested as they try to cook full, nutritious meals from local ingredients. Will the families discover the health, environmental and economic benefits the challenge is predicted to provide or will it be a 100-day slog? The series also draws attention to what average families usually eat, and exactly how far food travels to reach their plates.
