Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. Boston Area Gleaners is honored to be able to join this movement to address issues as varied as health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice.
We had our first Food Day event on Oct 22nd, Monday morning, with the help from girls from the Binah School, to glean kale in Lincoln. 190 pounds out of 340 pounds of the kale gleaned were used by the Boston Public Health Commission in its Food Day 2012 event on Oct 24th. Organized by ABCD Headstart, the kale were on the menu for the Food Day. A portion of the greens were offered to families to take home as well.
The Food Day 2012 event by ABCD Headstart turned out to be a great success! The Metro has published a great feature on the event. Let's encourage Boston to Eat our Greens more and more!Thank you for joining us on this campaign!
