Food Day (October 24th, 2014) is about Food Justice. It's about activating people around issues of food security, and it's a call to action to make a meaningful and long-lasting difference in our food system.
To put it even more simply, Food Day:
Promotes safer, healthier diets
Supports sustainable and organic farms
Aims to reduce hunger and improves food access
Petitions to reform factory farms to protect the environment and farm animals
Supports fair working conditions for food and farm workers
Join the movement! Food Day is not just a day; it’s a year-long catalyst for healthier diets and a better food system.

For the past three years, the Lexicon of Sustainability has sought out the foremost practitioners of sustainability in food and farming to gain their insights and experiences on this important subject. What began as a photography project to spread their knowledge has grown to include short films, study guides, traveling shows, a book, and a website where people can add their own terms to this ever-evolving lexicon.
