Encourage Employees to Shop for Local Healthy Foods

Let your employees know about these great resources that will help them locate healthy, local foods:

Food in Peterborough! · Get involved with different food projects or become a member of local food cooperatives or community gardens (www.pcchu.ca/food).

Community gardens · Work with your staff to start, support or get involved with local projects to grow fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs. (http://www.pcchu.ca/NP/NP-images/food-microsite/get-involved-eat-local.html).

Farmers’ Market · Learn how food is grown or prepared.

  • The Peterborough and District Farmers’ Market (www.peterboroughfarmersmarket.com)
  • The Wednesday Market, Est. 1997
  • A variety of other local Farmers’ Markets are open seasonally throughout the County.

Foodland Ontario · Look for this symbol when you are shopping. It’s an easy way to identify Ontario foods in your grocery stores and farmers’ markets and a great way to ensure that you pick Ontario freshness. (http://foodland.gov.on.ca/english/index.html)
