In 2020, Eat Well Tasmania partnered with We Eat Local to launch a new app in response to the COVID-19 crisis.

The app, called ‘We Eat Local’ makes it easier for Tasmanians to:

  • Buy fresh local produce during the COVID-19 crisis.

  • Support hard-hit Tasmanian food producers by buying their produce.

  • Maintain social distancing while sourcing food.

We asked Tasmanians how  they used We Eat Local in 2020.
View the survey results to see what they told us.

What is the app?

We Eat Local lists hundreds of Tasmanian businesses offering one of more of the following so that home cooks can access local Tasmanian produce during the COVID-19 crisis: 

  • Home delivery.
  • Click and collect services.
  • In-store shopping.

Thanks to funding from the Department of Health, all businesses are being featured on the We Eat Local app free of charge throughout the 12-month pilot.

How Does the App Help?

The We Eat Local app makes it simple for consumers to buy fresh Tasmanian produce to cook delicious food while staying at home during COVID-19.

Consumers can also support the jobs and livelihoods of many Tasmanian food producers and associated industries hit hard by the current crisis.

Ordering fresh, healthy Tasmanian produce through the We Eat Local app will also help you protect the wellbeing of yourself, your family and our community through social distancing.

Using the App

The attractive app is free and easy to use.

Just download it to your phone, search the listings for producers, click through to their websites and Facebook pages and get your food.

The We Eat Local app tells consumers where they can buy local produce and also shows where it was grown or made. It allows you to find producers in your local area.
