Local food networking event at Ignatius Centre Feb. 28

Guelph Wellington Local Food (GWLF) is hosting its Source It Here, a business to business networking event now in its fourth year at Loyola House, Ignatius Jesuit Centre on Feb. 28 from noon to 5:30pm.

For the first time, public sector partners; schools, hospitals, day cares and the University of Guelph who have been working with Guelph Wellington Local Food to implement more local food on their menus, will also take part.  

The panel discussion, as well as the break out sessions and trade show component of the event each have a lot to offer to the attendees.   

This event is open to current Taste Real partners as well as any other businesses that are interested in finding out how they can be more actively involved in the local food value chains.

The keynote address will be presented by Dr. Ralph Martin, Loblaw chairman in sustainable food production, University of Guelph.

Businesses from six different categories will be awarded the 2012 Local Food Champion award. Nominations can be submitted until Feb. 17.
