Eat local Thunder Bay! Buying from local suppliers is important to Fox on the Go and Fox on the Run for so many reasons:
- Keeps Dollars Local – We support local businesses because it keeps dollars local.
- Keeps Us Local Strong – As the COVID pandemic has shown us, being self-sufficient – especially when it comes to food – helps us weather bad times. Plus, the more we support our local economy, the more likely more local businesses will start up.
- Improves Our Environment – The more we can buy local goods, the less fuel and other pollutants are needed to get a product from A to B.
- Improves Flavour and Health – Food grown and produced locally is fresher, can be picked later, and is healthier for you. It also tastes better!
- Gives Us a Better Connection to Our City and Surroundings – Part of the “Buy Local” movement when it comes to food is that it helps us know where our food is coming from. This isn’t always possible in a climate and region like Northwestern Ontario. But it’s more common than many may think. Why buy potatoes from the United States when B&B Farms is literally just up the road? We are what we eat – and we are Thunder Bay.
