About Food Day

See Morgan Spurlock's YouTube video promoting Food Day

Food Day seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life—parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes—to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way. We will work with people around the country to create thousands of events in homes, schools, churches, farmers markets, city halls, and state capitals. The Center for Science in the Public Interest is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. As an organization, they decided to celebrate by launching what they hope will become an annual event that is both a celebration of real, healthy food—and a powerful, grassroots movement for change.

Five Specific Food Day Priorities:

  • Promote safer, healthier diets
  • Support sustainable and organic farms
  • Reduce hunger
  • Reform factory farms to protect the environment
  • Support fair working conditions for food and farm workers
