Support Local Food!

NDP MP Wayne Stetski’s Private Member’s Bill, C-281: An Act to establish a National Local Food Day, would designate the Friday before Thanksgiving every year as “National Local Food Day”.

New Democrats know that food matters – from farm to factory to fork. Ensuring that Canadians have access to healthy, affordable food and a sustainable food system are national priorities. Supporting our local agricultural markets is essential to achieving these goals.

Establishing a National Local Food Day would give Canadians an opportunity to celebrate local food and recognize the hard work of local producers and harvesters, food manufacturers, farmers’ markets, restauranteurs and others in every region across the country.
