Weekend reads: All about Food Day
Food Day is not, as I originally thought, a new thing. According to The Washington Post, there was a Food Day for three years in the 1970’s, but the movement ran out of money.
Michael F. Jacobson, the executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, explains why he conceived of Food Day and what he hopes it will achieve in a piece on The Atlantic.
Food Day has its own free, downloadable cookbook with recipes from chefs like Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, and Emeril Lagasse.
I can’t possibly list all the cities that are holding events around the country, but I know that Food Day is a two-week celebration in Philadelphia. If you live in the Philadelphia region, Philly Homegrown has all the information you need on events.
