Food is at the core of our life, but changing how we produce and consume food is at the centre of a sustainable life. That is why these GreenHeroes are finding planet saving at the end of a fork.

Jamie Kennedy: Jamie is one of Canada’s most celebrated chefs, and his passion for locally grown food has shaped the evolution of Canadian cuisine, one dish at a time. In the 1980’s Jamie distinguished himself in Toronto’s culinary scene by pioneering the slow food movement in Ontario with the founding of his organization Knives and Forks. Shaping sustainable practices for the culinary industry early, he became both chef and food activist. Today, Jamie continues to put his name behind grassroots causes. Recently he joined Sarah Harmer and Jim Cuddy at FoodStock, a culinary event that drew 48,000 supporters to stop the mega-quarry of Southern Ontario farmland and has just opened a restaurant in Niagara Falls.

Daniel Lanois: Daniel is an acclaimed musician and record producer, creating career-changing records for Bob Dylan, U2 and Emmylou Harris, among others. By stepping out of the recording studio and returning to the fields of Southern Ontario’s Niagara Escarpment, where he was raised, Daniel has become a food advocate supporting Ontario farmers. In August 2011, he hosted and organized the Harvest Festival Picnic in Hamilton, a celebration of local food and music with a line-up of stellar musical acts including The Tragically Hip and Sarah Harmer. For Daniel, the event was a platform for raising awareness about sustainable food and land preservation in Ontario. GreenHeroes was recording on location at the 2012 Harvest Picnic and recorded artists Jesse Cooke, Gord Downie and Sarah Harmer.
