Suzanne has challenged herself to spend one year eating only food local to Dawson City, Yukon – to create a public conversation about food self-sufficiency with communities across the North.

Welcome Northerners!

Suzanne will use her one-year challenge to start a public conversation  about food self-sufficiency with communities across the North.

Through social media and this website, First We Eat wants to collaborate with people and organizations that can help Suzanne’s journey by sharing knowledge, both traditional and innovative, on eating local North of 60 – not just in Dawson, but all across the North.

First We Eat will also put out specific calls for assistance – for example right now is the time to plan which seeds to order.

You can help grow this project by sharing, contributing and following.
