ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- In 2011, the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) initiated National Food Day, a nationwide celebration of healthy, affordable and sustain-ably produced food and a grassroots campaign for better food policies.  National Food Day is celebrated on October 24.

This year’s focus is called "Toward a Greener Diet," and it  encourages everyone to adopt healthier, earth-friendly and more humane food practices. And that means eating more plant-based foods.
