Food Day is coming up on Tuesday. Food Day is a nationwide celebration toward more health, affordable and sustainable food.

Food Day was created by CSPI and is powered by a diverse group of food movement leaders, organizers and people from all walks of life.

Food Day addresses issues varied from health and nutrition, hunger and animal welfare. The goal of Food Day is to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation's food policies. America is hungry for nutrition and the food most of us eat is not nutrient-dense. Look for Food Day events in your local area.
