ABOUT FOOD DAY

Created by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is powered by food movement leaders and citizens from all walks of life.  More than 2,300 Food Day events will take place in all 50 states in schools, farmers markets, restaurants, campuses, in homes and workplaces, and elsewhere to raise awareness, educate, and mobilize for better food policies. Food Day aims to bring people closer to a food system with "real food" that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.
