The Greenbelt Fund changes the way people eat food in Ontario. Their innovative investments get more local food onto the plates of Ontarians. They work with businesses, institutions and NGOs to make Ontario’s farmers the first choice for consumers. The Fund’s work has generated a 13-fold return on investments, permanently changed the food value chain, and improved local food awareness and education across the province.
