What’s Food Day?

food day
Have you heard of Food Day? The first ever Food Day is on October 24th, 2011. It’s similar to Earth Day, but focused on food and “eating real.”

Led by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is a grassroots movement made up of individuals and organizations passionate about promoting a healthy, sustainable, and just food system. The movement has 5 basic principles, and is committed to:

Some heavy-hitters in the food and nutrition world are behind Food Day, like Sid Lerner, founder of Meatless Monday; Morgan Spurlock, director of the documentary film, Supersize Me; Alice Waters, the chef/owner of Chez Panisse Restaurant in Berkeley, CA; and Michael Pollan, author of Food Rules: An Eater’s Manual, In Defense of Food: An Eater’s Manifesto, The Omnivore’s Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, and The Botany of Desire: A Plant’s-Eye View of the World.

Here’s what some have to say about Food Day:

Food day is an opportunity to celebrate real food and the movement rising to reform the American food system.” Michael Pollan, author

Food Day is a national celebration of the very things that farmers markets help grow at the local level — relationships between healthy farms, healthy people, and healthy communities.” Stacy Miller, Executive Director, Farmers Market Coalition

As food people, we want to do our part too. We realize that diet-related disease can’t be cured in a day, nor will there be a solution to the hunger problem in this country overnight, but small steps do help. Starting on Monday, we’ll be celebrating Meatless Monday right here, every Monday, by offering you a meat-free recipe idea. We’ll also keep you up to date on Food Day as it gets closer, and we’ll give you more ideas for getting involved.

Are you planning or attending a Food Day event this year? Tell us about it!
