We all have our struggles, but chances are, if you’re reading this, you’re doing better than a lot of people around the world. So I urge you to take some time to try to make the world a better place for everyone. Do it for your community and your country, but also do it for yourself, because it feels great to be a more positive member of your world, and it will benefit you directly as well.
A great place to start is National Food Day, October 24th. Everyone of course, has the right to eat, so food is one of best places to make a difference. National Food Day is a nationwide movement that promotes the distribution of healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. It focuses on responsibility in farming, workers’ rights, food production, and national food policy. Check out FoodDay.org to educate yourself and get the word out about this great movement.
Do something fun to celebrate Food Day — have a healthy bake sale or host a potluck dinner. Use Food Day as an opportunity to take a closer look at what you eat, where it comes from, and what the real costs are associated with consuming it.
