Food Day, the nationwide celebration and movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food, will feature thousands of events in all 50 states. Coordinated by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and led by a diverse advisory board of food movement thought leaders, Food Day is a great opportunity for the news media to cover food-related issues such as health, sustainable agriculture, farmworker justice, and animal welfare.

Thousands of parents, teachers, public officials, chefs, farmers, college students, activists, festival-goers, and others

Why:
Food should be healthy, affordable, and produced with care for farm animals, the environment, and the men and women who grow, harvest and serve it. But too often our food system falls short of that ideal. Food Day seeks to motivate Americans to change their own diets for the better and to take action for improved food policies.
