In the fall of 2019, Sustain Ontario introduced Bring Food Home 2019 Regional Events. Rather than a single, multiple-day event like in previous years, we partnered with various groups to host four regional events, each with a theme that resonated with folks in different areas across Ontario. The events addressed a wide variety of engaging topics that are pertinent to our province’s regional food systems. Learn more about them below.
