About Eat Local Grey Bruce

Vision

Eat Local Grey Bruce is a vibrant community of eaters, growers and makers of food, supporting each other in their commitment to local food production, ecological practices, healthy eating and meaningful employment.

Mission

Eat Local Grey Bruce is committed to connecting eaters with local growers and makers of food. It is a co-operative non-profit that empowers all its members to participate in an equitable and vibrant food culture by:

  • Giving all members and employees a voice, prioritizing transparent communication
  • Making sure food is grown and made fairly, with an emphasis on environmental stewardship
  • Having healthy, local food accessible to all, working to break down barriers of cost, mobility, time, and skills
  • And educating everyone on food-related issues so there is growing awareness and understanding on the part of all eaters, growers and makers of food.
