Food Day Canada will be celebrated on July 30, 2016. This special day is a chance for Canadians from coast to coast to celebrate our farmers, fishers, chefs, researchers and home cooks.

Restaurants in Vancouver include Burdock, Campagnolo, Bishops, The Fish Counter, West, L’Abattoir, Forage, Royal Dinette Timber, Cafe Median, Juniper, Boulevard and more.

And this year, in celebration of Canada’s 149th Year, Food Day Canada is launching Shop Like a Canadian”: a free online grocery list with 149 ingredients that we produce in Canada.

Well-known foods like flour (of all sorts) and tons of dairy products made the list, but there are also dozens of local contributions such as Montreal-made couscous, Taber-refined sugar, and cider vinegar produced in the owners’ orchards. There’s also VQA wine and craft beers from coast to coast and award-winning cheeses from small fromageries all across Canada, according to a Food Day Canada press release.

Food Day Canada has partnered with more than 250 Canadian restaurants. “Our Food Day Canada chefs understand that local ingredients are fundamental to our dynamic food culture. They are Canada’s real brand advocates. On Saturday, July 30, they will be creating their own hyper-local menus, with ingredients often so specific to their region that they cannot be replicated even a few dozen miles away,” says Stewart.

And on July 30, Food Day Canada is also inviting everyone to share their food stories on social media. Food Day Canada has created a special page on its website, FoodDayCanada.ca, and Canadians are encouraged to share their food images on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #FoodDayCanada or #CanadaISfood and it will appear on the FDC website.

Food Day Canada partners include the University of Guelph, Pulse Canada, All-Clad Canada, Dairy Farmers of Canada, KitchenAid Canada, Taste and Travel Magazine, and, the chef community of Canada.
