Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan is excited to celebrate Canada's Agriculture Day with a screening of the film Before the Plate. This film follows food staples of the Canadian diet all the way from the farm to the harvesting and processing operations, and showcases the final product at Canoe, one of Toronto's most prestigious restaurants.
Farm & Food Care Saskatchewan is pleased to be working with our partners, Farm Credit Canada, Federated Co-operatives and AgWest Bio to present this event. After the film plays, Farm & Food Care will be hosting a brief discussion with a local chef, farmer and grocery retailer. Do you have questions about where your food comes from? Wondering how the supply chain works or about products at the grocery store? Come and talk with our panel.
For only $7, participants can enjoy the film, along with a complimentary individual popocorn and take part in the discussion session. The film will begin at 7PM and the discussion session should be wrapped up by 9:30PM.
