Join the Conversation: #OurFoodHasAStory
We all eat food, and have a perceived connection – direct or indirect – to the food we eat. Just close your eyes and recall the scent of your grandma’s homemade bread; that ‘ah-ha’ moment when you first learned that pasta was made from durum wheat grown right here in Saskatchewan; the agonizing decision as to which of the mouthwatering pies you’d pick at the local fowl supper; or the pride you felt upon rave reviews for a meal you prepared with ingredients selected with much care and attention.
Your food story could be related to values, tradition, trust, affordability, safety, sustainability, health and/or community. It could align with Thanksgiving, harvest, or maybe an Ag Month event that happened in your community. A food story can happen when you try a new recipe or teach your kids how to cook; in casual conversations at the meat counter or in social situations, with family and friends. No matter our background, or link to agriculture, we all have a connection to food, and a story or two to tell!
We want to hear your food stories! All you have to do is:
- Post a relevant food story text, picture, or video on Facebook*, Twitter and/or Instagram.
- Include the hashtag #OurFoodHasAStory in your post.
* If using Facebook, please ensure the Privacy Setting for that post is set to Public so that others can see it and share it.
Tell us a story, and have a little fun doing it. You could even tag other friends on social media to do the same! We all need to talk about the values we share as Saskatchewan people – stories about how we produce food responsibly, safely, affordably and sustainably will do just that! It’s a story worth sharing and celebrating.
An example of a food story is:
“My daughter and I saw our first combine out last night. My daughter turned to me and said, ‘that farmer is making me cheerios.’ I think it’s so cool that she already understands the roles farmers have in making food.”
“As third generation farmers we’re proud to provide SK families with healthy, homegrown produce.”
