Guelph event to focus on locally grown food

June 9, 2017 by  

Guelph will soon be playing host to an event that will teach young people how to transform locally grown fruits, vegetables and other ingredients into nutritious meals.

During Farmhouse to Table, participants will be using farm fresh ingredients that were grown in Southern Ontario to showcase all the area has to offer. It will be a completely hands on experience for kids, and as they prepare meals, they will have a chance to learn more about where the food they eat comes from.

Participants will also discuss the impact people’s choices of food can have on their health and the rest of the world. According to the organizers, they have planned for it to be a whole lot of fun. It is open to anyone between the ages of 7 and 15, but the planners noted older participants will be likely to get the most from it. A printer that can prepare customized corporate gifts will be able to print t-shirts and other branded items that can be given to each child who registers for an event such as this.

A Farmhouse Table will be held in Guelph from Monday August 21th until Friday August 25th, and it will run from 9:00am until 4:00pm each day at 175 Emma Street. More information, and a chance to register can be found on the Summer Chef School website.
