    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 the Dundas Dairy Producers Committee (DDPC), and the Dundas Soil and Crop Improvement Association (DSCIA), recognize that many within our community need support and even more as the COVID-19 Pandemic continues.

    The DFA, DDPC and DSCIA are helping to increase access to local food by giving back to our community.

    Donations are of $500 from each of the local agriculture groups to Community Food Share. This $1500 donation is helping our community increase their access to local food while improving local food literacy.

    Our agricultural community encourages all to support local producers and encourages an increased use of local food by private and public sector organizations when possible.

    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 beef.
