In recognition of a continuing nationwide campaign to promote and support delicious and healthy food choices, in Colorado and the entire country, the Denver Botanic Gardens at 1007 York Street presents the second annual ’Food Day’ on Wednesday October 24, 2012.
From 9 am until 5 pm, community partners will join Denver Urban Gardens to host this special event that will showcase the many wonderful food selections that are available and produced locally through sustainable and humane methods. The day will highlight nutritious alternatives to fast food with choices that are affordable and nutritious for the average family.
The all day festival on Wednesday is designed to celebrate the importance of food with hands on cooking demonstrations for adults and children from master chefs. There will be informative film screenings and visitors will have the chance to hear from local experts in the food industry.
Admission to the Denver Botanical Gardens on ‘Food Day’ and participation in all of the food events will be FREE, sponsored by Chipolte. Learning to select healthy foods and prepare quality meals for yourself and your family can be something of a race relations issue.
Often the cultural food choices from the diet that we were exposed to as children are not necessarily the most healthy choices for us as we grow older. Ask Paula Deen. Fatty foods and sugary desserts can pack on the pounds and create serious health risks. Often, it is an ethnocentric food preparation and eating pattern that some families can fall into and continue to follow without realizing it. Let 'Food Day' enlighten your senses.
