Tag Archives: October food holidays

Often a time of harvest and plenty, it’s no wonder that October is Tackling Hunger Month and home to National Food Bank Week (dates vary) and World Food Day (Oct 16). Be a vegetarian for the month—or just the day (Oct 1). Satisfy your sweet tooth during National Bake and Decorate Month, especially on National Cake Decorating Day (Oct 10), the Sweetest Day (Oct 17), and National Chocolate Cupcakes Day (Oct 18). Eat an apple on Apple Day (Oct 21). So eat your heart out in October—it’s also National Caramel, Chili, Popcorn Poppin’, Sausage, and Spinach Month. Not full yet?
