|What is Food Day?|
Food Day is celebrated each October on the 25th of the month as a national day of awareness about dietary choices and food policies in the United States. This is a time for Americans to come together to share and eat nutritious, delicious foods and to engage in activism around how food is produced, distributed, and managed. Topics for consideration include improved working conditions for agricultural laborers and food service industry workers, better treatment of farm animals, access to food for all, and improved food safety.
The goal of Food Day is to address both hunger and obesity at the national and local level. Cooking lessons, vegetable gardening, potlucks, and lectures are all popular events on Food Day. The related “Eating Real” movement encourages eating unprocessed or minimally processed foods that are sustainably produced and that contribute to good health.
