Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, joined Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes MPP Steve Clark at the farm of Dawn and John Wynands to recognize two of the four Ontario Local Food Champions from Leeds-Grenville-Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes.
Debbie Wilson from Grahame’s Bakery in Kemptville and Rob Heuvel and Laura Bradley from King’s Lock Craft Distillery in Johnstown were on hand to receive certificates. Other recipients are Kudrinko’s Grocery in Westport and Wendy’s Country Market in Lyndhurst.
The new Local Food Champion program recognizes individuals, organizations and businesses who have demonstrated leadership in putting local food on Ontario family tables.
