Food Day

William and Helen Wise at NCSU Campus Farmers Market
If you grew up or still live on a farm, or with a garden in your backyard, you probably cannot imagine a diet without real food. By real food I mean fresh fruits and vegetables and healthy whole grains. Unfortunately, so much of the food our nation consumes today is overly-processed, stripped of valuable nutrients, and loaded down with salt and sugar to give it flavor. And this, I personally believe, is slowly killing us!

Food Day is an event that is storming across the country in an effort to support safe, healthy foods and to educate us about the importance of eating real food for good health. What better way to do this than to support local, sustainable agriculture. For more info about Food Day visit www.foodday.org
