Heather Snow took on the local food challenge put out by Local Food for Local People Coalition in June. Her completed challenge card was drawn randomly from the almost 200 people who took part, making her the winner of a wonderful basket of locally produced thanksgiving foods presented at the Horton Farmers Market this past Saturday.
The basket contents were generously donated by McSmith’s Organic Farm, Oegema Turkey Farm Inc, Farmgagte Markets Inc, Briwood Markets, and Janis and Mark Harris from the Harris Family Farm.
The Challenge was one part of a local food charter recently launched by the Coalition. For more information on the Local Food Charter, or the Local Food for Local People Coalition visit www.elginhealth.on.ca or call Eric Arnett at 519-631-9900, ext 1247.
