Blog: Local Food for Local Good Cultivates Happiness
Local Food for Local Good works to achieve a positive impact in the communities we serve by increasing awareness of local sustainable food and healthy eating habits, coordinating neighbourhood food networks and advocating for the accessibility and affordability of healthy food for everyone. Through the support we received through Heartland and iHeartCommunity Fund we were able to run a series of food literacy workshops through our Cultivate School, which educates people about where their food is grown, how they can access it and what they can do with the food that is grown in their community. Because of this generous gift we were able to offer nearly 10 hours of educational programming reaching nearly 600 people. Thank you Heartland and the iHeart Community Fund for helping us do good things with local food!
