Here’s where our stories start
Everyone has a food story. Farms and farmers are the beginning, but the stories come from memories we make. We are all a part of Ontario’s food stories. As farmers, we create stories with each harvest. These are the stories of our passion and hard work for Ontario food and land. But, without consumers, a farmer’s food story wouldn’t be complete. As consumers, food from the farm provides a connections to the land, to our community and to our families. Without farmers our tables would be bare. Everyone has a food story, and ours start here. What’s your food story?
Let’s celebrate food again by sharing our unique and diverse food stories.
What’s your food story?
Everyone has a food story; a moment or memory in their lives where food was a central piece. Perhaps it was your wedding dinner, or the first time you tried your favourite food. Maybe it’s calling yourself a “foodie” or travelling the world just to experience new cultures through their foods. Some people’s food stories are warm, celebrating, and full of fond memories of family and friends. Other people’s food stories are simple, about nourishment and fueling your body for your day.
