It’s National Food Day!!!

Left Field

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. Food Day, created by Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI), is powered by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders, organizations, and people from all walks of life. Food Day takes place annually on October 24 to address issues as varied as health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice. The ultimate goal of Food Day is to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation’s food policies. Join this push for a stronger, more united food movement by signing up to organize or attend Food Day events in your community.

The foods we eat should bolster our health, but the contemporary American diet is actually contributing to several hundred thousand premature deaths from heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and cancer each year. What’s more, the way our food is produced is all too often harmful to farm and food workers, the environment, and farm animals. The American food system has created a diet of cheap, salty, overly processed packaged foods, high-calorie sugary drinks, and fast-food made of white bread, fatty grain-fed factory-farmed meat, and French fries.

Food Day aims to transform the American diet. It’s time for America to Eat Real! All Americans—regardless of their age or race or income or geographic location—should be able to select healthy diets and avoid obesity, heart disease, and other diet related conditions.

•Promote safer, healthier diets
•Support sustainable and organic farms
•Reduce hunger
•Reform factory farms to protect the environment
•Support fair working conditions for food and farm workers

The picture up top is of my last pack of cigarettes. It’s also probably my 16th last pack of cigarettes. Why am I so sure that this really is my last box? Because I said so. I’ve quit smoking before with relative ease, but I always started again because I like smoking cigarettes. This is my go at getting it right, my run at truly quitting, my gift to future Adam.
