$10 Local Food Challenge

“When it comes to food, there is no place like home,” said Mayor Watson. “Especially in Ottawa at this time of the year, when there is such a variety and abundance of locally-grown fruits and vegetables. Fresh picked, nutrition-packed, and mouth-watering.”

The $10 Local Food Challenge is about raising awareness for the many benefits of buying local. During September and October, residents who pledge to direct $10 of what they already spend a week on locally grown and locally prepared food will have the chance to win one of ten $50 food coupons. These can be redeemed at any of the more than 30 fine restaurants and food retailers that are qualified members of Savour Ottawa.
