Today is National Food Day. Have you ever even heard of that? According to their website (www.foodday.org), “Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy affordable, and sustainable food.” That is a celebration that we can get behind.
Food plays such an important role in our lives that it only makes sense that we celebrate it and that we focus on celebrating the right food. Part of our mission statement speaks to our desire to make sure that we are providing nutritious food to our partners and clients. We recognize that food does so much more than affect our tastebuds. Food is the fuel that helps us work better, think clearer and function at all. What you eat makes a difference. That’s why more than two thirds of the food we distribute consists of fruits and vegetables. That’s a figure that we are proud to announce.
We hope that you’ll celebrate Food Day in some way today. That could be eating something a little healthier than usual or making sure that your meals come from a local and sustainable source. It could even be just talking about the food choices you make in your daily life. Organizations all over the country are hosting events to celebrate increasing awareness about food. Now if you see something about it, you’ll be aware of what’s going on. Be sure to let us know if you do anything to help celebrate this cool day!
