Shop. Cook. Dine. Celebrate: Food Day Canada!

The Provincial Government is recognizing Food Day Canada, which takes place tomorrow, (Saturday, July 30). The theme of Food Day Canada this year is: Shop. Cook. Dine. Celebrate. Canadian! During Food Day Canada and onward, governments, organizations and individual residents encourage people to shop, cook and dine Canadian.

Newfoundland and Labrador will be joining in, marked by the Provincial Government lighting up the Confederation Building in red and white tonight (Friday, July 29). As the largest national food event, activities will be happening in-person and online across the country. Organizers have described it as a huge celebration that praises our farmers and fishers, our chefs and researchers, our home cooks, and so many more. Information can be found online here.

Budget 2022 provides over $10.9 million to support farmers and producers in this essential work. Last week, the federal, provincial, and territorial Ministers of Agriculture reached a new agreement in principle: the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership. This agreement builds on the previous one, the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, which has seen $26.2 million invested in growing this province’s agriculture sector.
