Food Day Canada, a day to celebrate Canadian-grown food with all-Canadian meals, is this Saturday, Aug. 3.
University of Guelph food laureate Anita Stewart, who founded the annual event 16 years ago, is available to discuss why a day to raise awareness about Canadian farmers, growers and chefs is still as relevant today as it was in 2003.
As Canada’s food university, U of G has been involved with Food Day Canada since it began.
This year, the theme is “Shine a Light on Canadian Cuisine,” with 22 structures across Canada expected to be lit up in red and white in honour of Canada’s food scene.
And check out the full list of participating restaurants, tips for shopping Canadian, and a list of all-Canadian recipes on the Food Day Canada website.
