The day of food is recognized as Food Day in the US every year on October 24 and frequently during the month. In an effort to create an occasion akin to Earth Day, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) began the festival in 1975. The purpose of Food Day in the United States is to increase public awareness of issues such as hunger, the crisis of the American diet, and rising food prices as well as the growing industrialization of American agriculture.  Before 2011, when CSPI brought back the National Food Day campaign, Food Day in the United States had only existed since 1977. Food Day.org within CSPI now oversees the Food Day initiative.
One of the day’s themes encourages people to “Eat Real.” The definition of this topic is “reduce consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages, excessively salty packaged foods, and fatty factory-farmed meats in favor of produce, fruit, whole grains, and sustainably sourced protein.” Some of the nation’s most well-known food advocates are also there for the celebration. They envision a future where food can be produced responsibly, cheaply, and with high nutritional value. The objective is to produce food while keeping in mind the environment, farm animals, and the individuals who grow, harvest, and serve it.
The movement aims to strike a balance between affordability, nutrition, and the environment. They continually approach policy in an effort to achieve these objectives.
To make you fearful about your food, CSPI
Every time there is a food scare caused by an activist, CSPI takes to the radio to exaggerate the dangers and demands a total overhaul of America’s food safety protocols. The horribly false assertion that animals are “better protected from ‘Mad Cow Disease’ than people’ was trumpeted by CSPI while Great Britain was butchering its cattle at the height of the mad cow disease hysteria.
The common language used by CSPI to describe daily things like sandwiches and milk has another purpose: to make you fear for your food. Here is Jacob Sullum’s description of the “bottom line” for several foods from Reason magazine:
The skinny on extra-cheese pizza is, “Never order an extra-cheese pizza.” Just say no to fried mozzarella sticks, buffalo wings, crispy orange beef, beef and cheese nachos, and crispy orange beef.

First National Food Day is celebrated
It was established to spread awareness about the growing industrialization of food in America, as well as about hunger, rising food prices, and the country’s nutrition and health crisis.
Canada Food Day
Food Day or Day of Food The “World’s Longest BBQ,” a gourmet extravaganza that began in Canada as a response to the BSE issue of 2003, is known as Canada. The US trade embargo on Canadian beef was the cause of this economic crisis for farmers and was based on a single case of BSE (also known as mad cow disease) in Alberta, Canada. Since then, Canadian chefs from all throughout the country have joined in the celebration of Food Day.  Canada celebrates Food Day on the Saturday of the long weekend in August (also known as the Civic Holiday Weekend). Anita Stewart, a pioneer in Canadian cuisine, launched Food Day.
