PEI Food Advocates

There are two things Islanders love talking about – weather and food! They especially love sharing their food stories, food traditions and favourite places to eat with visitors to PEI. We’ve recruited a group of Islanders that are social media savvy and share a passion for local food and asked them to continue doing what they’re already doing: telling their PEI food stories on social media! Our PEI Food Advocates come from all walks of life and include chefs, artisan food producers, entrepreneurs, farmers, and social media influencers. Follow along as they share their PEI food journeys this September at the PEI Fall Flavours Festival and PEI International Shellfish Festival. 

Share YOUR PEI Food Story! Whether you live here or you’re ‘just’ visiting,  we want to hear your PEI food stories. Use #PEIFoodStory to share your favourite food experiences on Canada’s Food Island and for the chance to be featured on our socials!
