Today is Food Day
Created: 10/24/12 (Wed) | Topic: Events
Today is Food Day 2012. Activist group Center for Science in the Public Interest created this event a few years ago with the goal of sparking “grassroots mobilization for improved food policies.”
Whether you agree with CSPI’s goal or not, the day does provide a wide range of opportunities to engage with consumers who are part of the contemporary conversation about food.
A new entry to that conversation is the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance's USFRA FoodSource. The online resource was designed to provide accurate information about food in a one-stop destination.
“USFRA recognizes that consumers have questions and want to learn more about how their food gets from the farm to their plate,” said Bob Stallman, chairman of USFRA and president of the American Farm Bureau Federation. “With so much information available to consumers today, we wanted to create one destination that compiled factual and unbiased information on food production. This new site, USFRA FoodSource, provides these resources and also adds the voice of farmers and ranchers responsible for raising and growing the food we eat.”
