*Food Day*, October 24th, 2013.****

Have you checked out what is happening in your community?  Well you can
find activities here <http://www.foodday.org/events>, the creativity and
range of groups (from so many different sectors!) participating is amazing,
and you are invited to join in!****

This is only the 3rd year of the campaign and the word is spreading across
the nation that our state has amazing organizers who are planning events,
small and large, making an impact on our food system.****

>From the Berkshires, Western and Central MA, to the North Shore and South
Coast, many non-profits, businesses, schools, state agencies, food banks,
colleges, health centers, farmers, chefs and families are hosting
activities. We have many groups returning and new organizations joining
this fun campaign to create positive change and educate others in our
community about healthy food and supporting our local farmers/producers.****
