Phoenix Food Day

 Why Food Day?

​Food Day is celebrated to inspire people to change the way we look at food, personally and collectively.  Phoenix Food Day brings education and entertainment together to help the valley move towards a healthier future.

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


Join the FitPHX/Quincea Apple Crunch!   

All Food Day attendees are invited to join special guests in the annual Apple Crunch, helping to set a record of the most apples crunched in Phoenix at once.  Free apples are passed out at the event.  The Apple Crunch symbolizes solidarity in committing to a healthier, more sustainable food system for Phoenix.​

     

Apples graciously provided by Quincea and Green on Purpose.


 


 

Mayor Issues Proclamation!

 Mayor Greg Stanton issued a Proclamation that named Oct. 22, 2015 as Phoenix Food Day, endorsed the Maricopa County Food System Coalition, and supported local agriculture and locally-owned food-related businesses.   An excerpt from the Proclamation:  "Continuing to grow a local food system that is equitable, healthy, sustainable and thriving is critical to our economy and quality of life in Phoenix.  The health and well-being of our residents is the City's primary concern."
