Guelph and Wellington County want people to think more about where their food comes from — and where it ends up.

The communities are launching a public awareness campaign called Be a Food Future Star, with a goal of educating residents about nutrition and food waste.

“We’re hoping to better understand the public’s perception of food waste and getting people to, when they open up their fridge, make better habits at home when it comes to food waste,” said Jana Burns, the director of economic development for Wellington County.
