Registration for 2nd annual Local Food Challenge is open

CORNWALL – Food business owners, local organizations, and residents of Stormont, Dundas & Glengarry, Prescott-Russell, and Cornwall and area are now invited to register for the 2nd annual Local Food Challenge (LFC). The event will take place from August 12 to 28.

Registered participants will be challenged to (re)discover the local food sources in their community, choose more local food, and share their local food experiences online for a chance to win prizes.

If you are a local food business, program, or event organizer that grows, features, uses, or sells products from locally sourced ingredients, please register as a “partner” on the recently updated Local Food Challenge website,

Registration is free. Once registered, partners will have immediate access to our marketing tools which will help to promote their local food product, event, or service to all LFC participants and the community at large.

In 2015, over 200 businesses and community members participated in the inaugural Local Food Challenge, and the event organizers hope to reach many more in 2016.

While you are here, we have a small ask.

More people are reading The Review than ever before — across our many platforms. So far, we have not put up a paywall to limit the stories you can read. We want to keep you in the news loop. But advertising revenues are increasingly going to the big two: you know who they are. If you value The Review’s independent, local community journalism, or you value the many ways we support dozens of community organizations in their endeavours, consider supporting our work. It takes time, effort and professional smarts to stay on top of community news and present well-researched, objective news articles on issues which matter to you.

If you read stories on this website, or you have come here from an Instant Article post on Facebook, think about subscribing. It would be a vote of confidence for the work that we do, and for the future well-being of your community.
