Each year we celebrate Food Day and Earth Day with special events, and we hope you can join us in recognizing these important days in the coming years!
Food Day inspires Americans to change their diets and our food policies. Created by the nonprofit Center for Science in the Public Interest and driven by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders and citizens, Food Day aims to bring us closer to a food system with real and healthy food that is produced with care for the environment, animals, and the women and men who grow, harvest, and serve it.
Food Day is a chance to celebrate what our food system does right and take action to address the pressing food issues we face:
Many food and farm workers still labor in unfair, unsafe conditions, and animal welfare is often ignored. The good news? By collaborating on events like Food Day, we can build the momentum needed to change the American food system.

Each April, UCLA Health Sustainability hosts an annual Earth Day celebration at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center and UCLA Health - Santa Monica Medical Center. Staff has the opportunity to learn about what they can personally do to reduce the environmental impact in their work and personal life.
The Earth Day celebrations were also certified Green Events. These certifications show our commitment to the environment by hosting an event that is eco-friendly and sustainable.
