Food Day: Boston Description

Food Day: Boston - Food & Drink Event in Boston.

With both obesity and world hunger on the rise it’s more important then ever to find workable solutions to providing the world with healthy sustainable food choices. Since 1971, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) has been leading the fight for healthier food and better agriculture policy around the world. With national Food Day, cities all across the country join the CSPI with special events on October 24 addressing issues like health, world nutrition, agriculture and animal policy, hunger, and justice for farmers.

Every year at the annual Food Day celebrations, American cities offer local events and conferences in an attempt to promote healthier food choices and policies in their communities. Food Day offers a broad spectrum of events, attracting foodies, activists, and health nuts with activities ranging from a healthy “Eat In” smack dab in the middle of bustling Times Square, to Indigenous Food Days highlighting the nutritious options found in many traditional indigenous diets.

Boston’s Food Day attracts local farmers, restaurants, and foodies to promote nutritious local food choices and to inform the public about current issues in national food policy. Food Day in Boston features healthy menus at various local restaurants throughout the city as well as a special Farmers Market in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Past events at Food Day Boston include a screening of the documentary Food Fight at the Museum of Science and a community sourced potluck. Notable guests at Food Day Boston have included Eat Boutique’s founder, Maggie Battista, as well as Catherine Walthers, the President of the Martha’s Vineyard Chapter of Slow Food and the author of Soups + Sides.

Most of the public events at Food Day Boston are free, but special tasting events cost from around $15 to $35 per person. Try the healthy options at the local food trucks at Boston City Hall Plaza, or catch the free film screening at Clark University in Worcester. After the day’s activities, wind down at one of Boston’s historic bars or pubs.
