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.

Stories from our community

“Sitting around with many of my relatives celebrating the Chinese New Year eating a big dinner of many different kinds of food including shrimps and fried meats and plates of festivals, bread and dumplings. We are drinking beer and enjoying each other’s company.”

“Sitting down with the whole family, gathered around the dinner table and reminiscing about the old times with family. Mealtimes always brought the family together, to eat, drink and be together.”

“My favorite meal memories are the ones with all the family eating together. Enjoying time spent together laughing, talking passing the platers around eating our favorite meal. Meal time is when you truly feel the love of family.”

“My favourite memory about food is always with my Dad… every time the Toronto Maple Leafs played we would order pizza and watch the game and have cookies or chocolate for dessert.”
