Tuesday is World Food Day, designed to highlight the importance of food production.
Agriculture Minister David Marit said it’s important to recognize locally grown food.
He has proclaimed October as agriculture month.
“Our theme is, Our Food, Our Story,” Marit said. “We really encourage farmers and producers and everybody to get out there and talk about what we do for the food industry and what we grow,” Marit also said.
To mark World Food Day, 14,000 students across Saskatchewan will be munching down on locally-grown carrots all at the same time, for a big “crunch” sound.
In Regina, 27 schools and close to 7,000 students will be involved in the celebration of World Food Day.
