SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The national Food Day Celebration campaign hopes to make a local impact today.

Many Springfield businesses and organizations have joined together to celebrate Food Day. The Food Day celebration began in July with a series of more than 40 educational events through October.

Coordinators say the Food Day celebration is meant to highlight what it means to “Eat Real” – “as in, wholesome food from real farmers”.

Events included a movie series, canning and freezing classes, farm tours, and an art show.

The Food Day event series lead up to a Harvest Party, which is today at the new Farmers Park. The campaign is a project of the local nonprofit FoodCORE with partners and sponsors such as CoxHealth and the Healthy Living Alliance.

FoodCORE and their partners celebrated Food Day in Springfield in 2011, and 2012 but they hope to make this year the biggest yet.
