What is Food Day?

Think of it as an Earth Day – for food!

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. This is a national grassroots mobilization backed by some of the most prominent voices for energizing the food movement. Each year on October 24th, people gather at events big and small and from coast to coast in homes, schools, colleges, churches, city halls, farmers’ markets, supermarkets, and elsewhere to raise awareness about food issues and advocate for change.

Here in Savannah, Well FED Magazine celebrates Food Day with a festival on a weekend, sometime near the national day of observance.

Food Day in Savannah

This year’s festival will take place on Sunday, November 2nd, from 11am-6pm at Daffin Park.

Each fall, The City of Savannah is treated to a large outdoor festival, that is free and open to the public. Attendees are treated to a live concert, featuring many of Savannah’s top musicians.  The public is encouraged to bring their friends and family, to spend the day taking in the music, browsing over 100 exhibitors and vendors and shopping at the Farmer’s Market. Attendees are also sure to find interest among the dozens of unique and completely free workshops and cooking classes, suitable for everyone, including the kids!

 

Craving Change?

Spearheaded by the nonprofit, Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is organized around 5 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
