October 24, 2011 is Food Day Around San Francisco Bay
San Francisco is joining numerous communities around California and the nation in hosting events on October 24 for Food Day, a national grassroots campaign sponsored by the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Food Day will bring people together from across the country on and around Monday, October 24 to participate in activities and events that encourage Americans to “eat real” and support healthy, affordable food grown in a sustainable, humane way.
