The Savannah Food Day Festival was held in Savannah’s Daffin Park on Saturday, Oct. 28. This festival of fresh, healthy, affordable and sustainable food was part of a celebration held in cities across the nation.

Savannah festival attendees enjoyed live music, kids puppet shows, freshly prepared foods, farm fresh produce, exhibitors, and over a dozen unique workshops and activities for the whole family. Individuals were informed about creating healthy meals and eating habits..

The Food Day Festival was free and open to the public and was hosted locally by Well FED, an area organization and magazine centered on food, dining, and sustainable living. Nationally, Whole Foods Market sponsored the festival.

Food Day takes place annually on October 24 to address issues as varied as health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice. The ultimate goal of Food Day is to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation’s food policies.
