At its Council meeting on August 14, 2012, Town of Caledon Council proclaimed September, 2012 to be “Eat Local Month”.
The Caledon Countryside Alliance and Eat Local Caledon will organize a series of events to challenge Caledon residents, businesses and institutions to focus on eating, using and providing food grown, produced and processed in Caledon first and Ontario second during September and year round.
The Caledon Countryside Alliance and Eat Local Caledon will also work in partnership with local farmers, restaurants, food shops and other local groups and businesses to promote an Eat Local First Policy throughout the year.
“This is a wonderful way to raise awareness within our community while ensuring a vibrant and productive local food system in Caledon,” said Mayor Marolyn Morrison.
