Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Created by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and driven by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders and citizens, Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with real and healthy food that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it. Food Day 2015 will focus on greener diets as a way to address both health and environmental issues.
Food Day is a chance to celebrate what our food system does right and take action to address the pressing food issues we face:
Many food and farm workers still labor in unfair, unsafe conditions, and animal welfare is often ignored. The good news? By collaborating on events like Food Day, we can build the momentum needed to change the American food system.
UCLA Health is continuing to participate in this nationwide campaign. Special menus will be available on October 24th at the Dining Commons and Santa Monica Cafeteria. Click below to view the special menus.
