Local Food Week 2019
Where: Your Classroom
Ontario’s sixth annual Local Food Week is June 3-9, 2019. Established under the Local Food Act, 2013, Local Food Week presents an opportunity for Ontario farmers, farm organizations, agribusinesses, government partners and consumers to come together, celebrate and promote the good things that are grown, made and harvested in our province.
To help you and your students celebrate Local Food Week in 2019, AgScape is offering resources and programs for both elementary and secondary classrooms.
