*These farmer profiles represents the real story of an Ontario farmer who we source from for OSNP school nutrition programs. However, due to regional and seasonal variations, the farmer profiled may not necessarily be the actual farmer who produces the product being served in your school on any given day.

**Featured Tasty Ontario Tuesday products will be delivered with your regular produce delivery along with a promotional poster for each fruit and veggie to get students excited about this week’s Tasty Ontario feature.
