NYC, Go Sugary Drink-Free Week!

Take a break from sugary drinks for National Food Week, beginning Monday, October 24.

By C. Zawadi Morris | Bed-Stuy Patch

Food Day is this Monday, October 24, 2011!

Food Day is a national effort to push for healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way.

On this day, parents, teachers, health professionals, community organizers, local officials, chefs, school lunch providers, and eaters of all stripes will work with people they serve to create thousands of healthy eating events in homes, schools, churches, farmers markets, city halls, and state capitals.

As a participant in this effort, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene is encouraging all NYers to go sugary drink free for the week of October 24 – October 30, 2011.

You can participate as an individual, an organization or a school. For more information, pledge sheets, posters, stickers, or water bottles to help promote and support your efforts, please contact Yoreel Fraser.
