The annual event aimed at effecting personal and political change in the food system returns this Saturday, October 24.
For this Friday’s Food Day, we’re honoring some of our local heroes. Who would you add to this list?
Happy Food Day! Hopefully you joined hundreds of other New Yorkers for this year’s Big Apple Crunch. Either way, check out our three favorite photos from our Instagram contest!
Raisins have a reputation of being the Halloween treats that remain at the bottom of the sack long after the sugary lollipops and chocolates have been devoured. If the enthusiasm for vegetables at Eat NYC–held Monday night at Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School on W. 93rd Street–was any indication, dried fruit might be able to hold its own this Halloween.
What’s Food Day, you ask? Sponsored by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, it’s a little like Earth Day, except the end game is six goals that center on increasing access to healthy, fresh food for those of all ages and backgrounds; supporting sustainable agriculture; and ending diet and nutrition-related illnesses through policy change and public awareness.
