The Ontario Table's $10 Challenge

Here is yet another local food challenge floating around, The Ontario Table's $10 Challenge. The gist of the challenge from what I can see is to get folks in Ontario to spend ten bucks a week on local produce.

According to the website:
"If every household in Ontario spent $10 a week on local food and wine, we’d have
$2.4 billion in our economy at the end of the year."
I am sure that it is obvious by now that I am one of the choir boys {well, ok, girl} at the altar, for many reasons. This sounds like a pretty good one to me too. Oh, and on the website there is also free e-mags every month with in season recipes and tips on how one can eat local year round.

The woman behind this challenge is Lynn Ogryzlo, who is the author of The Ontario Table. I don't have this cookbook yet, but it looks like a real beauty and a must have for an Ontario local foodie!
