Community Gardens & Food Safety in C-K
Lyndsay Davidson 
Good evening and Happy New Year everyone! It's been a few weeks since we've all been together. I hope you've all had wonderful Christmas celebrations full of family, food and fun. Speaking of food, I think of one of my favourite presents this year was sharing Red Pepper Cheese Curds from Schinkel's with my family in London. I love supporting local and especially thinking back to the local vegetables that were showcased at the 2018 IPM in Pain Court. As the municipal slogan states "cultivating growth; from shore to shore", we are a bountiful basket of produce in C-K. 
This week I am proud to present Lyndsay Davidson, a dietitian from Chatham-Kent Public Health. She will be speaking on Community Food Security in C-K; "What is currently happening & how can I help?"
Quick Facts 
  • Been with C-K Public Health for 15 years 
  • Graduated from U of Guelph majoring in Applied Human Nutrition
  • Completed two internships: one with World Vision in Guatemala sponsored by CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) and the other with LHSC (London Health Sciences Centre)
  • Currently her work focuses on adult nutrition relating to literacy, food security & food systems 
As the region of C-K is bountiful in terms of the variety of fruits and veggies grown here, what is your favourite vegetable/fruit? Is there a particular recipe you enjoy cooking with this local item? 
Fresh strawberries in season! No, and I don't know that I have one favourite recipe-I love to try new ones and those often become my favourite at the time!
Do you have a local favourite food story? Like a hole in the wall fruit stand or unique farm market? 
My favourite local food thing to do is go to the local "pick your own" with my kids and enjoy the sun, produce, and time away. 
What do you think is the biggest misconception about food safety? For example, does lettuce from the grocery store still need to be washed? 
This is more our health inspectors that focus on food safety, but yes everything should always be washed, even if it says it has been done for you! Also people need to understand the difference between best before dates and expiration dates! 
I am also proud to present a new weekly tradition, This Week in Sunrise Rotary History. Click on the dated blue link below to see what our club was up to 6 years ago.
