Food Day is October 24
Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Created by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and driven by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders and citizens, Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with real and healthy just food that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.
