National Local Food Day
Le français suit
Food matters – from farm to factory to fork. That’s why NDP MP Wayne Stetski (Kootenay–Columbia) has introduced his Private Member’s Bill C-281, An Act to establish a National Local Food Day, which would designate the Friday before Thanksgiving of each year as National Local Food Day.
// Ensuring that Canadians have access to healthy, affordable local food and a sustainable food system are national priorities.
// Establishing a National Local Food Day would give all Canadians an opportunity to celebrate our local food and recognize the hard work of local producers and harvesters, food manufacturers, farmers’ markets, restauranteurs and others in every region across the country.
// A National Local Food Day would also provide an opportunity to raise awareness of the challenges Canadians face in accessing healthy, affordable food close to home.
We know that National Local Food Day is something everyone can get behind. From coast to coast to coast, we want to celebrate the diversity of what local food means to Canadians.
