After a long hard day of Lil' Parkies, cooking, cleaning and Violin lessons in midtown we realized we missed the Food Day tweets. Activities around the USA were organized today from fall festivals to movie screenings. Today was the launch of the new website NYC FOOD.
One press release stated:
"America Celebrates Food Day with More than 2,000 Events in 50 States Observations Include an "Eat In" in Times Square; a Festival in Savannah, GA; an Open House at the National Archives; and Events in Schools, Churches, Campuses, and Homes Monday, October 24, 2011, New York, NY-
Today a diverse range of organizations, public officials, and Americans from all walks of life are celebrating Food Day-a nationwide grassroots mobilization that encourages Americans to eat healthy, delicious food grown in a sustainable and humane way and to advocate for smarter food policies. Spearheaded by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, Food Day is being observed in all 50 states with more than 2,000 events from coast to coast."
We are exhausted but came home to whip up some wholegrain pasta with corner on the cobbs and homemade tomato sauce that we all sat and ate together at the nook. Apple slices for dessert. Mmmmmmmm good.
