The Project

 

What is SmartAPP?

SmartAPPetite is a local and healthy food collaborative project and a smartphone application!  We piloted a basic version of our app in the summer of 2013 and received a very positive reaction from users and vendors.  

We have now taken the app to the next step and have made it available to all local food providers and consumers in Southwestern Ontario.  

The iphone app can be downloaded on iTunes.  

What is the goal of the project?

The SmartAPPetite team has two main goals.

First of all, we want to make it easier for consumers to eat healthy local meals by improving food literacy about and awareness of what food is around the corner in our local communities.

Secondly, we want to highlight the importance of Southwestern Ontario's food industry to the local economy and support its role as a local economic development tool.

To do this, we connect local food consumers and producers while celebrating the wide variety of local healthy food that is grown in the province. We want to continue the discussion about the benefits of local, healthy food and help people learn where to get it and how to enjoy it.

We hope that you will join with us!
