National Food Day Resources For School

Posted on Oct 24, 2013 by Maggie LaBarbera

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and healthy Food Day!

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food.



Check out the Guide for Schools for ideas on how to participate:

  • In the classroom: by teaching all or part of the Food Day school curriculum—lessons designed to teach children the importance of eating healthy, fresh foods, cutting back on processed foods, and advocating for a healthier community.
  • In the cafeteria: by launching a Farm to School program, starting a school salad bar, introducing taste education activities for kids to learn about new and healthy foods, or serving a special Food Day menu.
  • In the garden: by starting a school garden, holding food system education activities in an existing garden, hosting a harvest party with children and area food growers, or bringing local chefs in for cooking classes featuring garden produce.
