On Monday March 18th, the Food Strategy hosted a speed networking event at the Finlandia Hall for buyers and sellers of local food called "Meat" Your Match. The event targeted buyers and sellers involved in the local food scene: food producers/farmers, food retailers, restaurants, institutions and food distributors.
The Food Strategy is working to make this an annual event with preliminary plans to host events focused on Indigenous food producers and harvesters, as well as institutional buyers and producers with high volume.
