Huron County joins other regions to take up the
$10 Challenge that builds the $2.4 Billion Impact
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE EXETER July 18, 2012 Exeter joins the provincial local food efforts on August 16th at the Exeter Farmers’ Market.
Internationally award winning author of the Best Local Food Cookbook in the World, Lynn Ogryzlo will be at the Exeter Farmers’ Market on Thursday, August 16, 2012 with her Canadian Best Selling book, The Ontario Table. The book celebrates the best food and wine from around the province and Huron plays prominently in the book with stories of Sifto Salt, Hayter’s Turkey, 100-Mile Produce and a 2-page story on Huron County’s agricultural prowess. Grower stories introduce consumers to the people who grow our food.
The Ontario Table is both a culinary travel guide and cookbook with 125 stories of growers, 110 local food recipes, 100 Ontario wine pairings, 20 culinary travel destinations (including Norfolk County), 57 provincial culinary maps, and countless happy mouthfuls.
During the day Ogryzlo will be issuing ‘The Ontario Table $10 Challenge’: If every household in Ontario spends $10 of their weekly grocery budget on local food and wine, there would be a $2.4 billion influx into the province’s economy each year. People who are up to the challenge will be able to sign The Ontario Table-Cloth. The tablecloth will follow Ogryzlo across Ontario on her year long book signing tour collecting signatures in what has become Ontario’s longest table cloth in support of local food.
The Ontario Table will also be available at the Exeter Farmers’ Market with proceeds from sales going back to Huron County, effectively keeping Huron money circulating in Huron County where it will do the most good.
The Ontario Table project is produced in partnership with: Epulum Books, Ontario Farm Fresh Association, Farmers’ Markets Ontario, Foodland Ontario, The Martin Prosperity Institute at Toronto University, Experience Renewal Solutions and the Ministry of Agriculture, Food & Rural Affairs.
