Attention Hunger Heroes: International Food Revolution Day is Tomorrow May 19!
If you were looking for another way to get involved in local food activism and keep the conversation going around hunger and food justice, how about participating in an international day of standing up for real food? It’s called Food Revolution Day and it’s tomorrow, May 19th. It’s a great opportunity to take an individual action – big or small – to make an impact on your local food system.
Here are some suggestions from Jamie Oliver and the Food Revolution folks on how to participate :
- Go to your local farmer’s market and try a seasonal fruit or vegetable that you’ve never had before. You’ll be supporting local growers and expanding your family’s healthy food palate.
- When planning your garden, plant a row for your local food bank. Demand on food banks in King County is at an all-time high and they always need more fresh fruits and vegetables. Be sure to find your nearest one here and give them a call about when you can deliver your harvest.
- Try making kale chips!
- Make small changes that lead to healthier, cheaper food choices for you and your family such as stocking the cupboards with healthy go-to snacks and trying out soup and slow cooker recipes to make your ingredients stretch further.
