Food Day was started in 2011 to help inspire Americans to improve their diets and to encourage local, state, and national food policies to focus on improvement. Every October 24th, tens of thousands of Americans participate in local events aimed at celebrating healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
Observing Food Day can be as easy as making a small change—like switching from soda to water, eating less (or better) meat, or bringing more fresh fruit and vegetables home to your family. Perhaps you’ll decide to identify food-related problems in your community and work toward a solution. To find an event near you, visit the Food Day Website here.
And with Election Day rapidly approaching, you can use Food Day to consider how the candidates on your ballot might impact food policy. The fine folks at Food Policy Action have a handy scorecard to see how your Members of Congress voted this year. While we vote every day with our forks—it’s important to actually vote with our votes!
No matter how you decide to celebrate on October 24th this year, I hope you will continue to think of every day as food day!
