Guelph, ON – Canadians are known to be humble, particularly when it comes to our natural resources, agriculture and food. Food Day Canada aims to change that once a year by shining a light on Canadian cuisine. All Canadians are invited to join in, shop, cook, dine and celebrate on July 30th.
Almost 50 iconic Canadian features and buildings will be lit up red and white to help celebrate Food Day Canada the weekend of July 30, 2022. The country will be a wave of red and white starting at the Confederation Building in Newfoundland in the east; to the CN Tower and Niagara Falls, Winnipeg sign, and SaskTel Centre in the middle; all the way over to the Legislative Assembly of BC in Victoria. Canadians are invited to find one near them and share their pictures on social media. Find the updated map of all the locations at www.fooddaycanada.ca
Food Day Canada comes to life online where everyone is invited to share their recipes, favourite restaurants and stories with #FoodDayCanada. Millions of conversations will happen in person and online from farmers and fishers through to chefs, markets, homecooks and barbeque masters. Everyone can join in on their favourite social media channel by following @FoodDayCanada.
Food Day Canada was founded by the late Anita Stewart, C.M., her family and some pioneering supporters in 2003 as a show of support for Canadian farmers and ranchers. Since then, it has grown and evolved into a national celebration for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours and fun! As a tribute to Anita’s legacy, Food Day Canada continues to actively promote our distinctly unique food culture with celebrations in person and online from coast to coast to coast encouraging everyone to shop, cook, and dine Canadian.
