Getting to Know Your Food Policy Council
Each October 24th, thousands of events are held across the nation in celebration of Food Day. This year’s theme is “towards a greener diet” which will link obesity prevention, fresh food production and access and environmental sustainability in our region. Food Day brings together leaders and organizations united by a vision of food that is healthy, affordable, and produced with care for the environment, farm animals, and the people who grow, harvest, and serve it. This one-day event working to encourage all of us to create a more just or sustainable food system through public policy and advocacy.
While several organizations who are members of the PFPC have commemorated Food Day in past years, this year PFPC seeks to connect and add to these by promoting a common calendar of activities, working on a Food Day mayoral and county proclamation and convening Pittsburgh young people for a Food Day Youth Strategic Dialogue on Food. See our calendar below for ways you can get involved beyond October 24th! For more information about our efforts visit:
