Food Day is a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies. Its aim is to help people Eat Real. Whether that means cutting back on fried foods and sodas or ramping up the leafy greens in your diet, there’s room for everyone to do more when it comes to nutrition and health awareness.
Food Day was created by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest, and is possible thanks to a network of more than 100 national groups and over 80 Advisory Board members that work together to raise awareness about food issues and strengthen the food movement.
It all began in 2010 with programs that build throughout the year and events that take place across the country. In 2012, 3,200 events took place in all 50 states.
The campaign culminates on Thursday, October 24, and we will mark it with a celebration in Washington, DC at 918 F Street, hosted by chef and restaurateur José Andrés.
The focus for Food Day 2013 is food education and we are delighted to be a partner this year to help further this mission. At LivingSocial’s 918 F Street, we work with local chefs who are committed to community education about the food we eat and the food policies that impact our daily lives.
