We are very pleased to announce the theme for Food Day 2015: Toward a Greener Diet. This year’s Food Day will celebrate a green and healthy diet that is packed with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean sources of protein, and that is produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it. A greener diet is beneficial to both human health and to the environment. It leads to less chronic disease, better soil, more and cleaner water, and cleaner air.
Mark your calendar now for Food Day on October 24, and join millions of Americans across the country in celebration of real food. That means cutting back on sugar drinks, overly salted packaged foods, and fatty, factory-farmed meats in favor of vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and sustainably raised protein.
Stay tuned for more resources on an initiative we are launching with other national partners to serve as many “green” meals around the country on and around Food Day as we can. Whether you’ll cook a meal at your home with friends, for your school district, or your hospital, be ready to join the national movement Toward a Greener Diet on Food Day and every day!
Be sure to let us know your facilities plans for Food Day, Oct 24, 2015!
