Do you think about where your food comes from?

  • 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.
