Food Access Coalition touts National Food Day

The Spokane Food Access Coalition wants to put Spokane on the National Food Day map.

The group is encouraging businesses to promote Food Day events by adding them to the national event website today, so the area’s commitment to “real, nutritious, and planet-friendly food” can be highlighted.

Spokane will join cities across the country to celebrate National Food Day next Wednesday. The annual event was created by the Center for Science in the Public Interest to help promote a healthier, more affordable and sustainable food system in the country.

Spokane area businesses are encouraged to promote the efforts they are already making to participate in the celebration.

The Spokane Food Access Coalition, led by the Spokane Regional Health District, has been working for the past three years to help people in the Spokane area access healthy foods. The coalition includes elected officials, food retailers, school nutrition program directors and city and county policy makers.
