Farm & Food Care now on PEI

On December 8, 2017 a new organization focused on connecting consumers to the food they eat was launched. Farm & Food Care PEI (FFCPEI) is associated with Farm & Food Care organizations already established in Ontario and Saskatchewan.

“PEI has excellent food…Farm and Food Care PEI’s efforts are going to focus on strengthening the connection between the consumer and their food. We hope to do that in a variety of ways. Farm and Food Care will be active in developing resources, both for consumers and also for food partners in public outreach and communication,” said Kayla Nieuwhof, coordinator, FFCPEI.

About Cheryl Young

A “Jill of all trades” describes Cheryl to a T. From operating her own handyperson company, to selling luxury cars, to working as a film and TV crew member, her resume is diverse. But her dream as a kid was to be a journalist and she started down that path many years ago at CBC Charlottetown. Returning to her journalism roots, she’s excited to be editing Salty’s content and occasionally writing herself.
