Dairy Farmers of Ontario (DFO) will be joining Canadians from coast to coast on July 30 in one massive celebration in praise of local agriculture and the people who make and prepare our foods.
DFO is looking forward to marking the Food Day Canada celebration with a social media post to promote using fresh, local Ontario dairy. It will feature a quick summer salad made with Ontario burrata for a refreshing and delicious way to enjoy local, in-season produce on its Instagram (@OntarioDairy) and Facebook (/OntarioDairy) pages.Source : New Milk
Food Day Canada was created by the late Anita Stewart, her family and some pioneering supporters as a tribute to Canadian farmers and ranchers in 2003. Her vision was to have our country come together, in person and online, to celebrate our incredible food and all the great people in our food system.
