Food Day people across the country will be hosting events. If you want to find an event in your city just follow this link and type in your zip code! If you want to celebrate but don’t want to attend an event, try preparing one of the recipes from the Food Day cook book, or make it a whole food week and buy some produce from a Farmer’s Market and cook some real food every night for dinner! Whatever you do, you’re sending a message by participating in Food Day celebrations: it’s time for real, sustainable food for health, not just our health, but the health of our planet.
