Earlier today the Point Fortin Borough Corporation launched the "Grow Your Own Food" Drive.

Here we seek to, through the Point Fortin Councillors, distribute seeds, and the required tools for planting and growing your own crops at home.

Educating the public on the importance of self-sustainability during these challenging times is a passion for the Point Fortin Borough Council. I am elated that this is coming into fruition.

Thank you to all stakeholders involved for making this drive possible.

Are you cooking at home more often these days? Here are some quick and easy tips to reduce your food waste:
🥦Reviving wilted veggies by soaking them in ice water
🍎Storing ethylene producing produce like apples in a paper bag in the fridge
🥕Keeping veggie & fruit peels and tops for soups and smoothies
🥔Trying yummy new recipes like pumpkin gnocchi, potato kofta and squash peel chips.
Look at how the City of Toronto is managing its Food Resources:

Over 50% of food waste in Toronto is avoidable. That means they’re throwing away leftovers and untouched food that could have been eaten, into the Green Bin and it’s costing them money (not to mention increasing trips to the grocery store).
