Event description
Food Day is celebrated each year at LA City Hall. Our theme this year is CURRENTS OF FOOD: Changing Our Food System Through Art and Culture.

About this Event

Every year in late October across the country, thousands of Americans commemorate national Food Day by bringing diverse communities together to enjoy Good Food and push for improved food policies to end hunger, promote health, protect food workers and care for our environment.

This year, Food Day in Los Angeles takes place during CURRENT:LA FOOD, a month-long event produced by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs that features public art in city parks around the theme of food.

“Food for us comes from our relatives, whether they have wings or fins or roots. That is how we consider food. Food has a culture. It has a history. It has a story. It has relationships.” Winona LaDuke, environmentalist and Indigenous activist.

Our theme this year will be CURRENTS OF FOOD: Changing Our Food System Through Art and Culture. Together at City Hall we will celebrate the various “CURRENTS” of food as art, culture and justice through art installations, performances and an interactive fair. Additionally, each City Councilmember will honor a “Good Food Champion” from their district who creatively brings food culture to life.

This year our Good Food Champions include:

  • Westlake Community Garden from Council District 1
  • Vegan Glory from Council District 5
  • Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen from Council District 8
  • Black Women for Wellness from Council District 10
  • Dmitri & Rosie’s BBQ from Council District 12
  • Lupita’s Corner Market from Council District 13
  • I Heart Wilmington from Council District 15
  • And more to come soon!
