Food Day

Food Day is a nationwide celebration of and movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. By promoting food literacy, organizers hope to make people, communities, and the environment safer and healthier.

This annual event hopes to reduce hunger, encourage healthy eating habits, promote sustainable agriculture, protect farm animals and the environment, and support fair working conditions for farmers and farm laborers. Encouraging local, regional, and national conversations and activities on these topics helps everyone understand how food is grown, how it reaches us, who has access to it, and how it can be prepared in a healthy, tasty way.
