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.
- Host an event or organize an activity, whether large or small.
- Coordinate Food Day activity for your area.
- Attend events in your community.
For more ways to get involved and event examples check out our 2013 Campaign Report (2014 Campaign Report coming soon) and our Resources page. Check out our Food Day 2012 slideshow below featuring photos from that year’s events including Mott Haven Academy’s (Brooklyn, NY) rooftop garden opening, the Future of Food: 2050 Conference (Washington, D.C.), and Babson College’s Annual Food Day Festival (Boston, MA).
