Ontario is spreading the word about local food to help increase consumer awareness of, and demand for, the good things that are grown, harvested and made in Ontario.

Buying and supporting local food creates jobs and economic growth in communities across the province. As part of the Local Food Act, 2013, the Province has established three goals to increase knowledge about local food. To encourage food literacy, the goals are to increase the number of Ontarians who:

  • Know what local foods are available
  • Know how and where to obtain local foods
  • Prepare local food meals for family and friends, and make local food more available through food service providers
