Time to fire up the grill and celebrate local food! Hope you picked out some delicious food from your local farmer. Here at Meal Exchange we’ve packed our picnic baskets and we’re climbing aboard the ferry to celebrate National BBQ Day on the Toronto Island. We all can’t wait to dig in to all the delectable local fare the team has prepared. Check in on our festivities by connecting with us through social media (@MealExchange).

If you haven’t registered your BBQ event, you can still do so HERE!
