TORONTO – The Greenbelt Fund, with support from the Ontario government, is providing a grant allowing Ontario North East (ONE) Meats and Golden Beef to work together to supply more locally grown meat to public institutions and First Nations communities in northeastern Ontario. This project is expected to bring more local food to health-care facilities and schools in the north.

With support from the Ontario government, the Greenbelt Fund is helping to increase the amount of Ontario food served in daycares, schools, universities and colleges, hospitals and long-term care facilities through the Broader Public Sector Investment Fund: Promoting Ontario Food.

"It is exciting to see collaborations like this come together to create a system that will help bring more local food to northern communities. It is the leadership taken on by ONE Meats and Golden Beef that is helping to find and secure new opportunities to work with the broader public sector and grow the amount of Ontario food served,” said Bill Duron, program director, Greenbelt Fund.
