Happy Food Day!

A project of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, National Food Day celebrates the changed place of healthy food in the national consciousness. Think of it as an extension of Earth Day, with people coming together for panel discussions, plantings, documentary screenings, and, of course, dinners.

The idea behind Food Day is to bring all the stakeholders together: foodies and farmers passionate about sustainable agriculture and urban vegetable gardens; activists who fight against food insecurity and in favor of fair treatment for farm and restaurant workers; environmentalists intent on preventing pollution; parents and public health officers battling childhood obesity.

So in honor of Food Day, Bon Apetit!
