Bistro ’67 Receives Feast On Designation


WHITBY, Ont. — Bistro ’67 — Durham College’s 70-seat field-to-fork, full-service restaurant at its Centre for Food (CFF) — has received a Feast On designation.

Sponsored by the Ontario Culinary Tourism Alliance, Feast On is a criteria-based program promoting restaurants and other businesses that showcase Ontario’s unique, locally produced food and beverages.

“The Feast On program is a perfect complement to Bistro ‘67’s commitment to the field-to-fork concept, which emphasizes the purchase of locally grown fruit and vegetables, as well as locally sourced meat and other products,” says Kevin Baker, dean, CFF. “We’re proud to not only support our local suppliers but to join them as well, as much of the produce we use at Bistro ’67 comes from the CFF gardens, which are tended by Durham College’s Horticulture – Food and Farming students.”

Feast On designations are awarded to restaurants that demonstrate that at least 25 per cent of their annual food-and-beverage receipts reflect products grown and made in Ontario, as well a as commitment to promoting locally sourced products whenever possible. The designation follows the college’s recent announcement that the CFF, including Bistro ’67, has been upgraded to a Three-Star Certified Green Restaurant by the Green Restaurant Association (GRA), a non-profit helping restaurants to become more environmentally sustainable through its Dine-Green program.
