The Local Dish

The Local Dish is a campaign with a big dream - to encourage people to enjoy more of the fresh and delicious food that's grown right here in Ontario. With your help, we're looking to create Toronto's largest collection of local food recipes, and make it easy to choose local more often at home, on the go, and when dining out. Share your favourite recipes for a chance to win great prizes!

Kids can enjoy face painting, arts and crafts, music and more while the adults are partaking in some of the best local food and drink Toronto has to offer!
