Food. This simple word brings up different images, issues and emotions for many people. Toronto offers a wealth of programs, services and research on food, and with Ontario's delicious local produce right in our backyard, we decided to create a friendly community event where people can:
* Sample delicious food grown right in Ontario and prepared by community
kitchens, chefs and community-friendly businesses, like Vert Catering, George
Brown Chef School, Cowbell and Fiesta Farms.
* Enjoy 10 free food booths from our community partners.
* Learn about food sustainability and community-friendly businesses from
Toronto's food community leaders.
* Connect with free programs from urban farming and cooking classes, to
children's activities and farmer's markets in our street fair.
* Join a local community garden, help pick fruit trees, or share gardening and
cooking skills with your neighbours.
We'll be announcing two lucky winners with $2,500 each toward a community garden project. And share your ideas on food in our Food for Thought video and photo booth.
>> Be sure to arrive early as eating is limited and first come, first served <<
