OCTA Looking for Food Writer/Photographer to Promote Feast ON Program


The Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance is looking for a dynamic, energetic and passionate person to help spread the word about Feast ON – Ontario’s Foodservice Designation Program. 

According to OCTA:  We’re looking for someone adaptable; comfortable in a fast paced, ever changing environment and obsessed with all things local food. Our ideal candidate would be hilarious (we love a good pun!), have a beautiful instagram account (full of local food photos, obviously!), have strong writing skills (have you seen our awesome blog?) and plays well with others.

We’re a small team, but we work hard to get things done, and get them done well. If you’re interested, please send your resume along with a brief note about why you love Ontario to rebecca@ontarioculinary.com.

SAVE THE DATE: Second Annual Meaford Earth Week, April 18 – 24th, 2015

Inspired by the success of Earth Week 2014 the Municipality of Meaford will once again host a Earth Week from April 18 – 24, 2015.

Earth Week will begin with the RE-Use Fair on Saturday, April 18th from 9 am – 1 pm at the Meaford & St. Vincent (MSV) Community Centre with many interesting activities throughout the week.

Watch newspapers and social media for Earth Week activities; a youth-friendly film at Meaford Hall, a birthday party for John Muir at the museum, and earth-friendly activities for all ages at our public library. The Municipality’s Environmental Services will showcase 4 new programs; the Blue W, Clean-Up Green-Up, Battery Collection depots and Plastic Film Recycling. Meaford Area Community Association (MACA) will sponsor a presentation entitled Food Packaging Examined; an in-depth examination of various contaminants that leach from packaging into our food. This information will be useful in making healthy choices for you, your family and your community. The Meaford Independent will again sponsor the yearly spring clean-up at Memorial Park. It’s hoped that other community groups will sponsor earth-friendly events.

Watch traditional and social media outlets for further details via Community Services Meaford on Facebook, and the Municipality of Meaford website www.meaford.ca.
