[Truro, NS] - A series of community suppers will enable participants to get a taste of local, seasonal foods during this month's Winter Fresh campaign.
"We live in a province that offers families many opportunities to enjoy a variety of delicious local foods in the winter months," said Agriculture Minister John MacDonell. "When Nova Scotians support farms and retailers by choosing local products, they're helping to create good jobs and grow the economy."
For the third straight year, the community suppers are being held this month in schools, church halls and community centres throughout the province, including two in Colchester County as part of the Select Nova Scotia campaign.
There are also a number of fruit and vegetable samplings planned in grocery stores around the province to allow Nova Scotians to taste the local food advantage.
The schedule for the two local suppers are as follows:
Feb. 11: John Calvin Christian Reformed Church Community Supper, John Calvin Christian Reformed Church, 69 Glenwood Dr., Truro, 5:30 p.m.
Feb. 12: Tatamagouche Farmers Market Community Supper, Tatamagouche Center, 259 Loop Route 6, Tatamagouche, 4:30 p.m.
