When we eat local, organic food, we support farmers who are committed to sustainable ecosystems. You might have heard the saying "vote with your fork." Considering how much money we spend on food, we send a pretty powerful message to farmers and food producers when we choose to buy food that is grown in a way that sustains life and health on this planet.
If you want to eat organic, we've got some resources to get you started. Check out our Local Organic Food page and our Down To Earth Listing for the best that Manitoba has to offer, or find out more about Genetically Modified Foods.
Our Growing Up Organic program is dedicated to getting more organic food into schools, child care centres, and other institutions. Whether you are a teacher looking for resources for your classroom, a parent wondering how to bring organic options into your child's school, or a staff person who would like to make organic food options affordable and realistic for your place of work, Growing Up Organic will connect you to local, organic food.
