Tips on how to have fun ‘Meals Day Canada’ in Kelowna and Victoria

You gotta eat.

So, you might as well eat fabulously and locally.

That’s the mantra of today’s Food Day Canada, the last Saturday of every July that’s meant to inspire everyone to shop, cook and dine Canadian.

Thus, it’s also a day to celebrate farmers, fishers, chefs, food researchers and home cooks.

Kelowna and Victoria are two Food Day Canada’s featured cities for our thriving foodie scenes.

At 9 pm, The Sails sculpture at the foot of Bernard Avenue in downtown Kelowna and the front fountain and ceremonial entrance at the BC Legislature in Victoria’s Inner Harbor will be lit up red and white (the colors of the flag) in honor of Food Day Canada.
