The Food Project
“The show is both well-researched and charming, complete with cow costumes and musical numbers.” – My Entertainment World
The Food Project premiered at the Toronto Fringe Festival on July 5th 2017. The project started back in January 2017 and consisted of weekly challenges such as eating strictly vegan, eating by Canada’s Food Guide, eating by the 100 Mile Diet and eating within a budget below the poverty line.
“Where does my food come from?” “How is it grown?” “What is the cost to the environment?” The Food Project encourages Canadians to question the cultural, environmental, and economic impact of our own food system. The company cooked, prepared, and investigated the complicated journey from the field to your mouth.
