The Food Calendar 2020

Food Awareness Days

Have you ever heard of food awareness days? And I don’t mean the silly ones such as national pizza day, but the days that draw important awareness to healthy eating and conditions affected by what you eat. Aside from the famous holiday’s I was unaware of days and weeks such as World Diabetes Day and Coeliac Awareness Week.

Food and health related awareness is so important as being educated on such conditions can help with supporting those who suffer from them. If you’re an owner of a café or restaurant it could be a good idea to keep up to date with a food calendar and show support by having themed days and weeks in your venue.

Not only would you be supporting and spreading awareness, but you would be making your venue more appealing. To make your menu more inclusive it could be worth considering more low sugar, gluten free and vegan options.

Keep track of food awareness dates with this calendar.
