Across the country, health officials, nutritionists, college students, advocates for farmworker justice and animal welfare, environmentalists, farmers, responsible companies, chefs, parents, and teachers are sponsoring activities urging Americans to eat real food, just food.
How can you get involved? Use the momentum around Food Day to introduce healthier foods into your diet. Ask your employer to announce an office wellness policy or to participate in a community supported agriculture program. Or, introduce cooking lessons in your school or plant a vegetable garden.
Here are a few other ways to get involved depending on your time, interest, and resources:
- -Join the conversation about Food Day priority issues on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Consider taking part in the #FoodDayChat Twitter chats on the 24th of every month.
- -Host an event or organize an activity, whether large or small.
- -Coordinate Food Day activity for your area.
- -Attend events in your community.
