Ontario NFU Submission to OMAFRA on Proposed Local Food Act

Members of the NFU have been at the forefront of the local food movement for several decades. With this strong grassroots involvement in the local food movement, the NFU is an outspoken leader in advocating for and developing programs to support local food as a means to strengthen farmers' power in the marketplace, protect the environment and build relationships between those who grow and harvest food and those who eat it.
