A three-year grant awarded to the Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network and All Things Food will help to build and support the local food system in Prescott-Russell and Stormont-Dundas- Glengarry Counties.
Through a $199,800 grant, the Ontario Trillium Foundation will support the development of the SDG&PR Farm Fresh Local Food Map, Directory and Smartphone App; the development of food policies and food charters among municipalities and institutions; bringing local food and food security stakeholders together; local food branding initiatives; gleaning projects; greater local food procurement among Green Food Box programs, and more.
The Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network and All Things Food collaborated last July to apply for funding, and received the OTF grant in December 2013. Both organizations encourage interested supporters to follow their activities on Facebook to keep updated on current projects.
