Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
The idea, according to the organizers, is to remind ourselves that
Food should be healthy, affordable, and produced with care for farm animals, the environment, and the men and women who grow, harvest and serve it. But too often our food system falls short of that ideal. Food Day seeks to motivate Americans to change their own diets for the better and to take action for improved food policies.
Even if you don’t have time today to celebrate at an event, try to eat just one thing healthier. One food that is freshly made. Just one thing that grew locally.
Because even a thousand mile journey starts with one first step.
