Food Day is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies that culminates in a day of action on October 24 every year. Spearheaded by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it. Think of it as an Earth Day for food issues!
Food Day seeks to inspire community action in every city and state in the country, with individuals and organizations coming together on October 24 to learn, debate, and mobilize to improve our food system and the American diet. Community action may mean organizing an event, leading a new initiative, or creating a petition to advocate for better food policies. Organizations and individuals may choose to use Food Day to celebrate what our food system does right, or they may choose to use Food Day to highlight the work they are already doing.
