Foodies, snack junkies, dessert lovers, and anyone who eats food really, National Food Day is just around the corner!
Food Day "is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food." People from all over the country gather to discuss issues such as "health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice."
One of the main initiatives of Food Day is transforming the American diet. Filled with high salt, high fat content, the American diet is in dire need of a healthy alternative. Food Day hopes to bring awareness to this major issue and offer options for a healthier diet so we can avoid obesity, hearth disease, and other diet induced conditions.
In celebration of Food Day, events are being held all over the country. Here are some of the ones happening around Atlanta:
