Food Day Celebration

The first national holiday for FOOD DAY
(Think Earth Day for FOOD!)
is October 24, 2011
and will be an annual event every year from now on.

Springfield, MO Food Day Celebration
will be celebrated Saturday, October 22, 2011.

The event will have a beer garden, live music, kid’s activities, lots of things for families, free food sampling opportunities, exhibitor booths and other fun festivities.

Springfield's Food Day Celebration will be in downtown Springfield
at the Wilhoit Plaza parking lot at Jefferson and Elm.

Admission will be one canned good for each attendee
or $2 per person/$5 per family
and proceeds benefit The Ozarks Food Harvest.

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.


Harter House Supermarkets will participate in this event also, because we want to celebrate the power that real food has to nourish us and bring us together.

We want you to participate in the conversation.
The most important ingredient in Food Day is you—and we invite you to join us for this event and help make Food Day a success.
Why Eat Real?
Real food tastes great. Meals built around vegetables, fruits, and whole grains are delicious and satisfying. We want to get Americans cooking real food for their families again. We want to celebrate fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy whole grains—and to support the local farms and farmers that produce them. We want all Americans—regardless of their age or income or geographic location—to be able to select healthy diets and avoid obesity, heart disease, and other diet-related conditions.
