The Sunday Supper event helps tell the story of our regional food systems by combining art and food through the work of musical, visual, and spoken word artists.

What is Food Day?

Food Day is a national movement aimed at inspiring Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Every October 24, thousands of events all around the country bring Americans together to celebrate and enjoy real food and to push for improved food policies

Now in its sixth year, thousands of Food Day events have popped up in cities across all 50 states. From festivals to film screenings, and even massive apple crunches, public and private organizations have found unique ways to encourage greener diets and advancements in making a more just and equitable food system.
