Dundas Federation of Agriculture 

June 6-12 was Local Food Week! It’s an opportunity to celebrate and recognize the abundance of fresh, healthy, affordable local food that we are privileged to have access to across the province. 

The Dundas Federation of Agriculture (DFA), along with Christian Farmers Federation of Ontario (CFFO), the Dundas Dairy Producers Committee (DDPC), and the Dundas Soil and Crop Improvement Association (DSCIA) recognizes that many within our community need support and especially as the cost of living continues to climb with inflation. 

The DFA, CFFO, DDPC and DSCIA are helping to increase access to local food by giving back to our community. On June 2, donations of $500 from each of the local agriculture groups to Community Food Share were presented in Winchester. The $2000 donation is helping our community increase their access to local food while improving local food literacy. 

Our agricultural community encourages all to support local and encourage an increased use of local food by public and public sector organizations when possible, supporting our agricultural community today and into the future. 

Community Food Share would like to also remind our local producers that they accept fresh produce and will work with our farmers for any donations of meat.
