Hooray, It's Food Day!

The number of farmers' markets statewide has more than doubled in the past decade to over 500.

Transform your diet and choose healthy options on Food Day.

Food Day is a national celebration created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) that happens every year on October 24. The movement promotes healthy living and encourages Americans to choose healthy options to avoid diet-related health conditions.

The day was organized to address issues such as health, nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare and farm worker justice.

There are several places in North Texas participating in Food Day festivities.

University of Texas at Arlington 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
University of North Texas in Denton 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Dallas Farmer’s Market 10 a.m. – 4p.m.
Arlington City Hall 6 p.m.
