Sooke Food CHI has been nominated as a CR FAIR 2013 Food Champ for Sooke Seedy Saturday by individuals in our region that feel we are making great strides with the greater food movement on Vancouver Island.

All of the nominees have been shortlisted by number of votes and after careful consideration they were narrowed down to about 11 finalists. Although, we were not shortlisted as a Food Champ finalist this time around, we were nominated for the work we do in your community. CR FAIR expresses thanks to all the nominees for the invaluable contributions you are making to improve local food security on the island.

The upcoming awards presentation is the “Changing the Way We Eat” event on Monday April 29th at the Belfry Theater.
