Food Day Is October 24, 2012
Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
Created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), it is powered by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders, organizations, and people from all walks of life.
Food Day takes place annually on October 24 to address issues as varied as health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice. Last year, in the inaugural year of the Food Day campaign, more than 2,300 events took place in all 50 states.
Getting involved with Food Day is easy, rewarding, and fun, and there are lots of ways to plug in. The events vary depending on the needs of the community, and include health fairs, lectures, panels and demonstrations, sustainable community meals, petitions, food drives, and much more.
