Food Day -- looking back, looking ahead

On and around October 24, 2014, more than 8,000 events and activities took place in all 50 states in celebration of Food Day. The Food Day 2014 Campaign Report offers a visual snapshot of what the fourth annual Food Day celebration looked like. Check it out today! Full of event ideas, use it as a source of inspiration as you begin to plan for Food Day 2015.

Because we want everyone to eat better and healthier diets not only on Food Day, but every day, we’re sharing three delicious stews created by The Healthy Cook Kate Sherwood. They’re hearty and satisfying. And because vegetables and legumes take center stage, they’re better for you and the planet.

This coming October, GardenShare will be hosting our biennial North Country Food Day Youth Summit - a day of workshops, networking, and action planning for high school students from across the North Country.

Topics include:
·         diet and health
·         sustainable agriculture
·         hunger in our communities
·         junk food marketing to kids 

A volunteer committee planning this event - contact us if you would like to help!

And, watch for more information coming out soon!
