Be Well with Canola

We're excited to share with you the winners of the Be Well with Canola contest.  The two winners were selected at random by Manitoba Canola Growers using random.org.  As different as their stories were, their passions are equally the same. The national winner is a professional Home Economist and FBC Member Mairlyn Smith from Toronto,  and the Manitoba winner is farmer Curtis McRae.  Each one wins a video prize package estimated at over $5000 giving them the opportunity to share their stories and inspire others. Meet the winners here and watch for their Be Well Stories soon!

A Canadian Food Experience

Feeling a little inspired by FBC2013, Valerie from A Canadian Foodie, is putting together a great blogging project for Canadian food bloggers called The Canadian Food Experience.  Following up on Dana McCauley's call to action to fly our Canadian flag, Valerie is starting a project to get fellow food bloggers to post about a unique Canadian experience on the 7th of each month.  If you think you might want to participate, be sure to check out Valerie's project!

A Canadian Foodie

Thank you so much, FBC! The Canadian Food Experience Project was announced last Wednesday and we already have 21 participants from Coast to Coast! I am thrilled. This is such an important undertaking for me, and I am so delighted that so many have jumped in right away. The level of enthusiasm and support has been overwhelming, and as we continue to collect a varied and responsive group of people writing about a specific, personal, and different Canadian Food Experience each month, the project will take on a life of its own.
I am glowing!
Hugs to all.
