Every October 24, thousands of events all around the country bring Americans together to celebrate and enjoy real food and to push for improved food policies. October 24 is a day to resolve to make changes in our own diets and to take action to solve food-related problems in our communities at the local, state, and national level.
For Food Day 2014, Health Care Without Harm united more than 350 hospitals and other health care facilities across the country in serving at least one meat item raised without routine antibiotics. More than 126,000 meals were served. Read about our Food Day 2014 efforts.
Resources to Promote Your Work
In addition we created a number of resources for hospitals to showcase their efforts to help create healthy, sustainable food systems by serving meat raised without routine antibiotics. Check out our Food Day toolkit, which includes resources (including a printable poster and table tent), suggested activities, and social media suggestions to help you promote your activities not just on Food Day, but throughout the year.
Our Food Day blog series features guest contributors discussing the role hospitals can play in protecting antibiotics and preventing their overuse in animal agriculture.
Designed for use on Food Day and beyond, we encourage you to add your facility's name and logo to our infographic, print it out, and hang it up all over your facility to showcase your efforts to save antibiotics.
