Food Day Planning Is Gathering Momentum

A growing number of people and organizations nationwide, including ADA members, are organizing activities in their workplaces, schools and communities to celebrate Food Day, to be held October 24. ADA's Chief Executive Officer Patricia Babjak is a member of the Food Day Advisory Board and ADA is a Partner Organization.

The goal of Food Day is to "build a broad 'real food' movement of Americans who want healthy, affordable and delicious food produced in a sustainable and humane way."

Information on how become involved in Food Day is available on the program's website.

It contains a map that will show where events are taking place, a "Coordinator's Guide" and a store with t-shirts, mugs and other items bearing the Food Day logo and drawings donated by New Yorker artist Edward Koren.

Food Day programs already planned or under way include:

  • The New York City food market Eataly is bringing in 20 farmers to its store on Food Day to talk to customers
  • Activities are being planned at the University of Vermont, Stanford, Yale, University of North Carolina and other schools
  • California activists are planning statewide policy advocacy efforts
  • Iowa sustainable agriculture advocates are organizing a national conference on how small and mid-sized farms can gain better access to markets.

ADA members are also encouraged to "like" Food Day at and use the #FoodDay hashtag to tweet your Food Day thoughts.
