Sarnia, ON – Lambton Public Health thanks everyone who participated in the "Let's Talk Food Lambton" survey and focus groups to share what food means to them.

"We were excited by the number of community members who got involved in Let's Talk Food Lambton and shared their concerns and suggestions with us," says Lana Smith, Public Health Nutritionist.

Over 1,900 residents responded to the online survey and five focus groups were held across Lambton County. Everyone who participated was entered in a draw to win one of five $100 grocery gift cards for a food retailer in Lambton.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • Janice Brennan
  • Denise Douwes
  • Melanie Maidman
  • Gord Kennedy
  • Betty Beale

Lambton Public Health is currently analyzing the results of the survey, which will be combined with other local information, to create a snapshot of the food landscape in Lambton. The information will then be included in a community food assessment report to be released in fall 2014.

The project is funded by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care through the Healthy Communities Fund.
