Local Food Education and Outreach

Creating connections between farmers and local food leaders is the key to moving more local Ontario food throughout the province. The Fund creates these links through a variety of projects including Ontariofresh.ca, the only province-wide online marketing service where wholesale buyers can source a diverse range and volume of Ontario products.

The Fund’s Regional Food Hub Pilot Project will demonstrate how to link a mainstream distributor with a regional aggregator to source and supply local products to customers in their region, providing small and medium sized farmers with access to markets.
