Winchester, Ontario — The first-ever Regional Food Map showcasing the bounty of local foods in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry and Prescott-Russell is currently being developed by the Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network.
The map will display local farms’ products, farmer’s markets, co-ops, and businesses selling or serving local foods in the five counties.
The Agri-Food Network is providing free listings to each of these groups in the map’s first year, and encourages businesses to visit their website to submit their listing. Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are also available to businesses and organizations that wish to support local food and be featured prominently on the map.
Businesses, organizations and individuals can learn more about the map by visiting www.agro-on.ca. The deadline to submit a free listing is May 18th, 2013. The Network anticipates a map launch date of June 2013.
The map will be available free of charge to residents in both a paper and online format. For more information about the SDG-PR Regional Food Map, contact Dana, Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org or (613) 875-3262) or visit www.agro-on.ca.
