It’s Food Day Canada but …

how much do you think is left for this Ontario farmer after trucking is paid?

A disgrace! How much do you like to get paid per hour? How much is this farmer getting paid per hour?
A disgrace! How much do you like to get paid per hour? How much is this farmer getting paid per hour?

By supporting these grocery stores selling product that is dumped on the market, you are wiping out the family farm that offers wholesome food.

Celebrate Food Day Canada! Support your farmer by not supporting these sales. Please go to your local farmers’ market for fresh local Ontario corn.

#SayItLikeItIs: In her two years of graduate work (2016-2018), Kaytlyn learned the art of bearing witness to an unheard collection of stories about human dignity. She first explored how she could apply a spiritual care therapeutic model to how farmers relate to their land. Realizing a greater cultural narrative was implicated, she then studied the impact of collective memory on cultural narratives and the pervasive "don't care" attitudinal construct towards Earth and Her landscapes.

One thought on “It’s Food Day Canada but …

  1. Hey Gayl::
    Good thought. I was, however, at the Lindsay farmers market this morning and found that almost all of the produce offered for sale there was from the Ontario Food Terminal. A better thought might be buying from the farm gate, or having the markets disclose where the produce is from without having to ask the question. I think a lot of people assume that if it is for sale at a farmers market it is locally grown, which is most certainly not always the case!
    Keep up the good work, I read all of your posts and agree with your philosophy. I am so proud of you, speaking the truth is not the easy path, but your passion shines through!!
    Linda
