After a 34-year absence, Americans are celebrating Food Day once again on Monday, October 24. The idea is to do for the food movement what Earth Day has done for the growing Green awareness across America. 

The folks at the Center for Science in the Public Interest, the brainchild behind the original—and resurrected—Food Day, are hoping to honor these six principles on Monday: 

Reduce diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods
  •   Support sustainable farms and limit subsidies to big agribusiness
Expand access to food and alleviate hunger
Protect the environment and animals by reforming factory farms
  •   Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids
Support fair conditions for food and farm workers

So how can you do your part?
