EcoSource’s Go Ontario! Granola Bars feature no additives, preservatives or trans-fats, and 100% Ontario-grown cranberries, apples, cherries, oats and honey.

Simple changes in daily habits can add up to large reductions in our environmental impact. EcoSource, a youth and family-oriented organization devoted to promoting environmentally friendly lifestyle choices, brings LFP-certified food and education programs to the Peel District School Board.

The Peel District School Board may become the first in Ontario to offer Greenbelt and other locally grown food to all of the students and staff in its 232 elementary, secondary and culinary arts schools, creating a substantial and sustainable market for Greenbelt farmers interested in supplying produce to the local area. This program provides an important forum for education with classroom visits and farm activities, forging a connection between a whole new generation and the farmers and land that feed them.
