Celebrate Real Food on Food Day

images

The fourth annual Food Day is almost here and things are revving up! We’ve got one week till the now annual celebration of healthy, affordable, and sustainable food happens on Friday, October 24. Year-round, Food Day is devoted to mobilizing support for policies that advance healthier diets, promote sustainable and organic agriculture, reduce hunger, reform factory farms, and support fair working conditions for food and farm workers. The special focus of Food Day 2014 is food justice — (from the Food Day website) – Food Day envisions food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it.

In Maine, and other states nationwide, community events will call attention to food access issues and celebrate the national movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
