For Partners

NH Eats Local Month partnerships are a no-cost, in kind promotional partnership opportunity— NH Eats Local promotes your business or organization as a partner and in return, your business or organization shares the NH Eats Local Month message of eating and supporting local in New Hampshire. Farmers, restaurants, food producers, eaters, fishers, hunters, foragers, ANYONE and everyone who loves local food will come together for 31 days of rallying around the bounty of our state. All month long we will be sharing stories, information, and love for all things delicious and LOCAL. Thanks to all in advance for their partner support for our 2021 NH Eats Local Month festivities this August! Learn more below about our various opportunities to get involved.

NH’S BIG BITE
To kick off NH Eats Local Month on Sunday, August 1, we are encouraging all Granite Staters to come together to take a big bite out of something local. This year’s bite: pancakes with deliciously local New Hampshire maple syrup. Our partners can plan and promote pancake breakfasts at their businesses and in their communities to show their support. Eaters can whip up pancakes at home with their families. And everyone can take photos of their big bites and share with us at NH Eats Local!

HOW TO PARTNER FOR NH’S BIG BITE:
– Plan a pancake breakfast in your community as a fundraiser or networking event
– Offer a pancake special at your restaurant or feature local maple syrup
– Source local ingredients for your pancakes, including maple syrup, local bacon or sausage, eggs, fruit, and more!
-Share for recipes for pancakes or other dishes featuring local NH maple syrup
