It’s that time of year again – we’re celebrating Food Day! Every day is Food Day for us at The Creative Kitchen, but every year on October 24th, Americans are inspired to create a just food system, improve the American diet, and raise awareness about the critical importance of food education in schools. Food Day 2015 focuses on greener diets to address both health and environmental issues.
Why should I get involved?
“Food Day is a chance to celebrate what our food system does right and take action to address the pressing food issues we face:
• Poor diets cause widespread obesity, diabetes, and other diet related diseases.
• Millions of Americans struggle with food insecurity and hunger.
• Vital food safety and anti-hunger programs are constantly under attack in Washington.
• Many food and farm workers still labor in unfair, unsafe conditions, and animal welfare is often ignored.”
Celebrate with us!
We’ll be celebrating Food Day at our Whole Foods Markets classes on Wednesday, October 21, in Tribeca. If you’re in the New York City area, join us in making a nutritious and delicious Food Day recipe!
