In the words of event organizer, cookbook author and lecturer Anita Stewart:
Food Day Canada is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers; our chefs and researchers…and, above all, our home cooks. [...] Food Day Canada is the time and place for Canadians to share their food and their stories with each other while leading other nations in cultural diversity, food ethics, magnificent flavours … and fun! We know how to throw a great party, so LET’S SHOW THE WORLD!

At the council meeting of July 7, Grey County Council formally endorsed the Bruce Grey Food Charter.
Council agreed that “a diverse, sustainable and just food system is integral to the overall health of any community”, recognized that “leaders representing all aspects of food in our community engaged in an extensive process to develop a guiding document” and that the Food Charter “recognizes the impacts of food on physical health, social justice, culture, education, sustainable economic development and the environment”.
Endorsement of the charter implies that in future, council will consult and take into consideration the recommendations in the document before making decisions relating to food security.
The Municipality of Meaford was the first to endorse the charter in May. The Bruce Grey Poverty Task Force continues to solicit endorsements from municipal and community partners across Grey and Bruce Counties.
