Local Food Heroes
Amidst all of the hustle and bustle that makes up Toronto’s vibrant local food movement, there are some individuals and groups who stand out by going above and beyond.
Over the past nine years, the Toronto Food Policy Council has honored many business and community leaders with a bi-monthly “Local Food Hero” award.
Individuals chosen for this award are not only leaders in their community, but innovators in their field and an inspiration for us all. Each recipient of the award sees the world in a unique way and is able to provide creative and unique solutions to overcome a barrier within the food system.
The Toronto Food Policy Council is excited to share the stories of our Local Food Heroes past and present.
Below is a list of our Local Food Heroes. We are in the process of generating a profile of each hero, so click on the live links to read their fascinating stories. Enjoy!
