​What is Food Day?

Food Day & Healthfest is celebrated to inspire people to change the way we look at food, personally and collectively. Phoenix Food Day has been bringing education and entertainment together since 2014 to help the valley move towards a healthier future.  In 2019, Junior League of Phoenix partnered with the City to add a healthfest feature. 

Eating healthy is good for you, the economy, and the environment!

Meet Junior League of Phoenix, our partners in Food Day & Healthfest.

Junior League of Phoenix is committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women, and fighting hunger in the Greater Phoenix community. Learn more about Junior League of Phoenix and ways to get involved on their website.​
