Our Bowling Green Favorite today is actually a promotion for better and healthy food in our community. Food Day will be October 24—in 2011 and in years to come. Food Day seeks to bring together Americans from all walks of life—parents, teachers, and students; health professionals, community organizers, and local officials; chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes—to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.
We challenge you to check out one of our local farms or food producers. With your support of local farms we can have healthy food for our community and the money stays in our community.
Also, Barren River District Health Department will present a free viewing of the documentary “Food Inc.” followed by a brief discussion at the WKU-Gary A. Ransdell Hall Auditorium. Aimed at college students and other adults starting at 5pm.
Food Day is backed by an impressive advisory board that includes anti-hunger advocates, physicians, authors, politicians, and leaders of groups focused on everything from farmers markets to animal welfare to public health. But the most important ingredient in Food Day is you—and we invite you to organize an event and help make Food Day a success.
