Brianna Ly, barista
Yeah it does affect how I shop. I shop all over, but in summer I’m much more likely to go to a farmer’s market. In the winter it’s harder to go out of my way (to shop local) because I don’t have a car.
Dick Mark, retired
No, I don’t think about where my food comes from and it doesn’t affect where I shop.
Loretta Braden, retired teacher
Yeah, I think about where my food comes from. I’m more inclined to buy local, but also to buy food from places that aren’t affected by slave labour and such.
Patrick Bruyere, first-year student
To be honest, I don’t do any shopping. All that is my girlfriend’s job. I just pay the bill… But she does buy a lot of the organic stuff and it smells and tastes better.
Wade Beauliue, first-year student
Yeah, I guess so, so I shop at Safeway because they sometimes have local foods and it’s Canadian.
Warren Johnston, educational assistant
Yes. I shop mostly at Sobeys, Safeway and Price Choppers. I prefer local foods, but it’s not always available.
