Eating Local 

Local food is grown and produced close to where you buy it. Different people have different distances they consider to be "local" food. Labels such as “Foodland Ontario” and “Product of Canada” can help you find food grown closer to home. Learn about the vegetables and fruit that grow in Ontario each month to help you plan meals around local foods.
