Do you know what Oct. 24 is? It's the first-ever "Food Day," being celebrated around the country and here in Rhode Island.
According to our nutrition expert, Gina M. Guiducci, Food Day's goal is "nothing less than to transform the American diet" towards more healthy, less processed foods. Events include the official launch of a Statewide Food Council in Rhode Island at the State House and a flash mob planned for Kennedy Plaza at 3 p.m.
We'll have more coverage, including Guiducci's column on the events, in an upcoming issue of Thrive. For more information, go to the Food Day RI Facebook page, or www.foodday.org.
