Participate in Earth Day with an Earth Dinner
April 11, 2014
If you’re looking for an easy, fun way to show your support for the environment and eat healthy on Earth Day, we’ve got just the thing—an Earth Dinner! After all, every holiday has its own food tradition except Earth Day, until now. Start by planning a dinner with as many local, seasonal, and organic ingredients as possible – supporting local and organic farmers is a great way to celebrate Earth Day.
Then, get to know the story behind your food. Where did it come from? Who were the farmers? What is the history of each dish’s recipe, or the food itself? Finally, have some meaningful conversation about food, sustainable farming, and your own connection to the food, the earth, and each other.

You can request a special card deck with tons of great tips and conversation starters and check out the Earth Dinner Booklet for information about Earth Dinner and the idea behind it. Finally, download the Earth Dinner Toolkit, complete with a preparation checklist, editable poster, and multi-purpose postcard. Celebrate Earth Day right this year by hosting your friends and family for a very special Earth Dinner!
