Looking for a gift for the person who has everything? Or who won’t even hint about what they want? Or maybe you just want to give something to those in need. These charities help people with groceries, farm animals, and vegetable gardens and also food safety, working conditions, and clean water.
On one of the busiest shopping days of the year, you might not want to leave the home. No problem. All these charities accept online donations.
But promoting safe, healthy and affordable food is only one aim of Food Day, which is sponsored by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, a nonprofit watchdog group that fights for food labeling, better nutrition, and safer food. The organizers also want to support sustainable, humane farming, and fair trading conditions.
Around the United States, cities and communities are coming together to showcase the benefits of eating healthy, locally grown, and organic food.
Food Day is coming up on October 24. To help everyone with the planning, the sponsors of Food Day have put together a free recipe booklet with twenty-eight recipes from some of America’s top chefs.
Food Day is on October 24 this year – only three months away. To help with Food Day planning, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has put together a set of guides.
Food Day’s goal is nothing less than to transform the American diet.
