Local Food Going Mobile
McGuinty Government Helping to Promote Ontario Food
Ministry of Agriculture and Food
Ontario consumers will have the opportunity to taste and discover more about great Ontario food products available to them when the 'There's No Taste Like Home' Mobile Educational Trailer visits their community.
The trailer, outfitted with a fully equipped kitchen, will be used to promote "buy local" through cooking demonstrations and tasting opportunities at industry, community and school events across the province.
The Ontario Cattle Feeders' Association developed and operates the trailer with support from the Ontario Market Investment Fund program.
- The project received $60,000 in support from the Ontario Market Investment program.
- The four-year program is part of Ontario's enhanced investment in 'buy local' initiatives and has invested more than $3 million in 63 projects to date.
- The Foodland Ontario program has expanded to include meats, dairy and eggs in addition to fresh fruit and vegetables.
This is a great way to reach out to Ontario communities and schools and bring them the wonderful tastes of Ontario food. We know the best food is grown close to home and our investment in the mobile trailer is helping to take the buy local message on the road."
Our community is pleased to welcome the "There's No Taste Like Home" mobile educational trailer. Promoting Ontario food helps to boost our local economy and our local producers."
We need to showcase the great foods that Ontario farmers produce here at home. This project pushes our marketing efforts to a whole new level by giving consumers the opportunity to taste and enjoy the local foods our sectors are promoting."
