The Muskoka North Good Food Co-op is receiving up to $100,000 in funding through the Rural Economic Development program. Parry Sound – Muskoka MPP Norm Miller was at the Co-op last week on behalf of Ontario Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, Ernie Hardeman.
According to a media release issued by Miller’s office, the funds were to develop a multi-use commercial kitchen intended to serve as commercial space for value-add producers and also to serve as a community space used for teaching.
“Our government is proud to support projects that help to grow jobs and open the doors to economic development in rural and Indigenous communities,” said Miller in the release. “I am pleased to be able to help our communities identify their economic strengths and develop strategies that can attract business and investment.”
