Here’s a map of the Food Day events happening all over the country – on and around 10/24
October 24 is a day to resolve to make changes in our own diets and to take action to solvef ood-related problems in our communities at the local, state, and national level. In 2015, FoodDay has the theme “Toward a Greener Diet.”
This annual event involves some of the country’s most prominent food activists, united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it.
With Food Day, we can celebrate our food system when it works and fix it when it’s broken. Across the country, more than 8,000 events took place in 2014, from community festivals in Denver, Savannah, and New York City, to a panel discussion on food justice in Washington, DC, to thousands of school activities in Portland, Minneapolis, and elsewhere. Hundreds of events are being planned on and around October 24, 2015, in all 50 states.
