Local asparagus

Local love.

Hi everyone! Nice to be here.

Now can I let you in on a little secret?  Since moving to Toronto, there’s really just one thing I want and it’s very simple. I want to know where I can eat in this town!

Okay, maybe that’s a bit whiney. But think about it. Finding places to eat, places that serve or sell good, real food is not as easy as it sounds. The truth is I needed LocalFoody before I knew it existed. And seeing as I’m pretty typical, I’m going to make the sweeping assumption that, if you’re reading this, then you need it too.

Why do you need LocalFoody?

Well, because you care, at least most of the time, about yourself and the world around you.

You care about the food you eat.

Local food is fresh. And fresh food is tastier and better for you.

You care about the environment.

Local food is green; it doesn’t travel half the planet just to sit on your plate for 2 minutes before it’s gone.

You care about the economy.

Local food helps our farmers. They need us — and we need them. We can do our part.

You care about the future.

Local food is political. Vote with your wallet and send out the message that consumers (I prefer  “citizens”, but anyway) demand access to real food!

And what is real food?

It’s food that is fresh, natural and contains ingredients you can pronounce and recognize. Real food is safe to eat; it is not full of chemical additives, artificial preservatives, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics and genetic modifications. It is food that IS food. Like grandma (bubbie, nana, mamie, oma, avo, etc) used to make.

Like I said, I want to know where I can eat in this town. And at LocalFoody, we’re going to find out. We’re going to bring the farm to the city. And we’re going to bring people to local food.

Thanks for joining us!
