Celebrate Local Comfort Food at Sobeys & Foodland

Comfort food is defined as food that is satisfying because it is prepared in a simple or traditional way and reminds you of home, family, or friends. It makes you feel good.

Local food shares many of the same connections, so it’s really no wonder that comfort food and local ingredients go hand in hand.
