If we polled Cheapsters on which day of the year they would call Food Day, we would probably find a range of answers. Many might jokingly say Thanksgiving, while the sugar addicts would counter with Halloween. As it turns out, however, the nation celebrates Food Day on Wednesday, October 23. Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.
However, not every city celebrates Food Day exactly the same. Much of the purpose nationwide is driven at encouraging young people to cook. For example, students in New Orleans are competing in a healthy smoothie blend-off. Houston is holding a healthy Indian lunch cooking class, and Charlottesville, Virginia, is is having a schoolyard Veg-Off. You can celebrate Food Day in a similar way by ‘liking’ the Food Day Facebook page. If you do, you’ll be able to download a FREE cookbook entitled 20 Recipes to Get Kids Cooking.
So, what is Indianapolis doing locally for Food Day? You can come by Indianapolis City Market downtown between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 23 for a planned food-themed Twister game. You can also plan on learning more information about Food Day in general. Food Mythbusters will be playing in the background, as well. Plus, you can continue your celebration of Food Day at City Market by trying one of the many, well, food vendors set up in the area.
I went to the link on facebook and it said the campaign is over and did not show any recipes.
We spoke with the organizer and it was on as of Sunday. Thanks — will look into it farther.
OK, the national recipe giveaway hit its quota. The local events and other activities on the Facebook page are going strong.
