What is Food Day?
Food Day is a national, grassroots movement toward improving access to healthy, affordable, and sustainable food created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. In 2011, over 2300 events took place across the country, engaging tens of thousands of Americans in education and civic activism. Food Day has the ultimate goal of strengthening and unifying the food movement and improving food policies by encompassing hunger, nutrition, agriculture policy, animal welfare, and farm-worker justice.
Our campus plays a strong role in this movement. Many departments are working hard to promote healthy, sustainable and affordable food at the UA. By joining together with a shared vision on October 22nd we will promote real food and inspire students, faculty and community members.
What are we doing at the UA?
From the top down, the UA promotes healthy and sustainable living. That’s why we are celebrating with a giant Food Day Fair on Wednesday, October 22nd. We hope that this showcase event motivates and inspires us all to do even more to improve food on our campus and in our Tucson community.
