Food Day Canada is a chance for all Canadians to join hands in one massive celebration in praise of our farmers and fishers, our chefs and researchers, and of course our home cooks.

Food Day Canada was created by the late Anita Stewart, her family and some pioneering supporters as a tribute to Canadian farmers and ranchers in 2003. Stewart’s vision was to have Canadians come together, in person and online, to celebrate our incredible food and all the great people in our food system.

There are several ways to mark the occasion:

Shop. Source local ingredients. Local can mean close to home or Canadian! Check out the extensive ingredient list Anita Stewart curated on our website.


Cook. Try a new recipe or bring back a family favourite. Home cooks and barbecue enthusiasts this is your time to shine with a #FoodDayCanada feast or picnic.

Dine. Support a local restaurant that features Canadian ingredients. Check out the Food Day Canada partner restaurants and events for extra special menus on

Celebrate. Dozens of icons are being lit up red and white from coast to coast. Visit one near you! Make some special plans with your favourite people. Make a #FoodDayCanada road trip to your favourite farms, markets, or restaurants. Insert your ideas here!

Share. Food Day Canada comes alive online with people like you sharing your stories. Be sure to use #FoodDayCanada and use the tag @FoodDayCanada so you join the conversations happening the week leading up to and the big day, July 30.
