Food Day: A Call to Action
Food Day is a call to action to make a meaningful and long-lasting difference in our food system! Food day promotes healthier diets, supports sustainable and organic farms, aims to reduce hunger and malnutrition, improve food access for under-resourced communities, reform factory farms to protect the environment and farm animals, and support fair working conditions for food and farm workers.
Why Food Day? The typical American diet is contributing to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other health problems. Those problems cost Americans more than $150 billion per year. A meat-heavy diet takes a terrible toll on the environment. Eating Real can save your own health and put our food system on a more humane, sustainable path. With America’s abundant resources, there’s no excuse for hunger, low wages for food and farm workers, or inhumane conditions for farm animals. Join the Movement! The most important ingredient in Food Day is you! Food Day is not just a day; it’s a year-long catalyst for healthier diets and a better food system!
