Food Day Canada is July 31

Reading Time: 2 minutes

This will be the first Food Day Canada without its late founder, food activist and culinary icon, Anita Stewart. It will be a special one, therefore.

Canadians will be sharing good food and Canada will be lit up from coast to coast for this year’s Food Day Canada celebrations.

Almost 50 buildings and icons, from Government House in St. John’s Newfoundland to Niagara Falls, the Fairmont Banff Springs and up to the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre in Whitehorse, will be glowing with red and white lights to show our gratitude to all the good people who help get food to our tables.

Canada is rich in food and blessed to have all the incredible people who work in our food system, including farmers and fishers, chefs, researchers, food processors, restaurant and grocery frontline workers and more.

All Canadians are invited to celebrate Food Day Canada/Journée des terroirs on Saturday July 31, 2021.

“It’s our pleasure to invite all Canadians to take part in Food Day Canada celebrations, “said Crystal Mackay, Food Day Canada Coordinator.

“The harvest is in and there are so many options to enjoy anywhere and everywhere. Come together at backyard barbecues, picnics, potlucks, patios and kitchen tables, in person and online.”
