Food Day Canada

Guess what tomorrow is… If you answered “the first full day of my long weekend” then you would be correct, but that is not the answer I am looking for…

Tomorrow is Food Day in Canada.

“On July 30th and all year round, I urge everyone to join in the celebration at a participating restaurant near you, or by creating your own all-Canadian meal right in your own kitchen, backyard barbecue or around the campfire. Wherever you are – it’s time to cook and eat Canadian!” says Hon. Gerry Ritz, Canada’s Agriculture Minister.

I have said it before, and I will say it again, I can’t stress enough how important it is to buy Canadian and locally grown foods. Not only do the foods taste better, but your purchase also supports the thousands of local farmers who work very hard to bring you high quality, safe food.

So I encourage you to join in the fun, and take part in Food Day Canada tomorrow!

What will you be cooking?
