Today is Food Day Canada in Saskatchewan, and across the country. Originally started in 2003 as a way to support the Canadian cattle industry, it has now grown to include a celebration of agriculture, the food management system and Canada’s culinary culture.  

"Food Day Canada is an excellent opportunity to share the stories of Saskatchewan producers and the world-class, environmentally sustainable food they grow in the province," Agriculture Minister David Marit said.  "Today, we should all recognize our agriculture industry for everything they do to help feed the world.  We are fortunate to have an abundance of healthy food grown here at home, and I'm proud the province is participating in Food Day Canada." 

"Food Day Canada is a great way for everyone to support Canada's agricultural sector, whether by enjoying a great meal at home or out at a restaurant," APAS President Todd Lewis said.  "Saskatchewan produces a wide variety of high-quality agricultural products like meat, dairy, oilseeds, lentils and more and is the world leader in mustard exports.  Saskatchewan farmers and ranchers are proud of the hard work they do every day to ensure our province's many food products meet the highest standards of quality, and Food Day Canada is about showing appreciation to farmers and ranchers for that hard work." 

There are a number of ways to get involved in Food Day Canada. This includes shopping at a farmers’ market, cooking a family meal, trying a new recipe or eating at a locally owned restaurant. You can also share how you are celebrating food day with the hashtag #FoodDayCanada.
