Food Day, a nationwide event celebrating healthy, affordable and sustainable food, is being held on October 24th – this Wednesday. Haven’t made plans yet? Don’t fret, there are many options! This celebration is meant to bring people together to create a more unified food movement, and there are many ways to make this happen!
On Wednesday you could do something as simple as talking about Food Day’s priorities with your family around the dinner table. If you are feeling ambitious, you could even invite some friends over for dinner and to watch a food movie (find great ideas for movies and dinner with Glynwood’s Food Day kit). Food Day’s website also has listings of events happening around the country – type in your zip code, RSVP to an event and make some new friends who are as interested in improving our food system as you are.
And if you just can’t get away, we can help you participate from your living room, office or almost anywhere. We're celebrating with a special Food Day Twitter Conference and hope that you will join us!
Here’s how our Twitter conference will work:
