Food Day 2021 Resource Guide

The EatWell Pod at Semel Healthy Campus Initiative annually celebrates Food Day, which is a nation-wide day dedicated to raising awareness around our food systems. This year we hope to continue conversations from our blog post The Language of our Food System: Food Apartheid and Food Sovereignty and our Community Collaborative Cookbook inspired by our 2019 Food Day Sustainable Recipe Contest.

In addition to seasonal and sustainable eating, the EatWell Pod encourages you to reflect with us on the plants that nourish us, and their significance to the environmental landscape of North America and foodways of Native Americans. We selected the following ingredients collaboratively with Chef Julia Rhoton for this year’s Food Day seasonal recipe and created this guide as a starting point to learn further about their significance.
