FOOD DAY!

October 23, 2011

….. sounds like our kind of national celebration/ awareness day

Thanks for Kristi, it was brought to our attention that it is National food day tomorrow!


Goals of Food Day

1. Reduce diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods

2. Support sustainable farms and limit subsidies to big agribusiness

3. Expand access to food and alleviate hunger

4. Protect the environment and animals by reforming factory farms

5. Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids

6. Support fair conditions for food and farm workers

Tomorrow focus on eating REAL foods and building meals around  whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. The purpose of food day is to encourage us as a nation to eat real foods instead of artificial, processed, salty, fatty foods that we have no idea where they came from. To transform the current American diet into a more healthful, sustainable, and humane diet.

Food Day’s goal is nothing less than to transform the American diet”- Foodday.org

So excited for this tomorrow! You know we’ll be participating! 🙂
