Theo nguồn tin của trên mạng phoenix.gov Phoenix’s Green Team Invites Residents to Food Day and the Apple Crunch Oct. 22, 2013 The Phoenix Green Team, FitPHX and other city department volunteers, in partnership with Arizona State Department of Health and Maricopa County, are hosting this year’s free Food Day celebration from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, at Cesar Chavez Plaza, 251 W. Washington St. The Food Day Festival is part of a national celebration of promoting healthy, affordable and sustainable-produced food. More than 70 vendors representing restaurants and other local organizations will participate in the event’s farmer’s market to distribute food samples and educate attendees on healthy eating, gardening and more. “This is a great opportunity for Phoenix residents to learn about our local healthy food vendors,” said Mayor Greg Stanton. “Food day promotes sustainable food and healthy snacks and I encourage everyone, especially those who work downtown, to stop by.” Mayor Stanton, along with Councilman Daniel Valenzuela; Will Humble, director, Arizona Department of Health Services; Dr. Bob England, director, Maricopa County Department of Public Health; and Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman, will lead event attendees in an “apple crunch.” Free apples will be available and the public will be encouraged to “crunch” into their apple at noon to set a record for the most participants in an apple-crunching event in downtown Phoenix. “There is truth to the old saying ‘you are what you eat’ and Food Day is a great opportunity to start thinking about what we eat and drink, and ensuring everyone has access to quality, affordable, locally-produced food, ” said Councilman Daniel Valenzuela. “Making just a few small changes – like eating more fresh vegetables – can make a big difference in long-term health and quality of life.” Attendees are encouraged to share their Food Day experience on social media using the hashtag #FoodDayPHX.
