Long Sault workshop about bringing local food into the sharing economy

 There’s a food revolution going on, and several dozen guests at a first-time seminar on Thursday were finding out ways to get more deeply involved in it.

The Sprouting New Connections: Scaling Up event was hosted by All Things Food/Bouffe 360, in partnership with several organizations.

Talking about the sharing economy and the role technology is playing in it, keynote speaker Marcia Woods, CEO and co-founder of Barrie-based Fresh Spoke, told the gathering “it’s bloody well time we take advantage of this opportunity and apply it to local food.”

Fresh Spoke, which has an Eastern Ontario regional ambassador, says it’s reinventing the supply chain and giving local producers a new way to get food orders where they need to go, providing a marketplace platform that connects people with local producers and simplifies the order, payment and delivery process for buyers and sellers.
