National Food Day 2012

Following the success of last year’s first Food Day, this coming October 24, 2012 will mark the second annual National Food Day. It is organized by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), along with other leaders in the food industry, activists, and others from all across the country. The ultimate goal is to unify the nation’s key stakeholders to promote improved food policies. The campaign also addresses additional issues including: health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farmer work justice (just to name a few).

Promoters of the initiative believe that food should bolster one’s health, not hinder it. Thus, a primary goal is to promote healthier, more affordable, and more sustainable food. In turn, there are many “Food Day” events occurring on October 24, 2012 throughout the country. To find out what events are happening near you, you can go to the Food Day website:
