Food Revolution Day is here again in Lake County! This year the Lake County Food Revolution Day has expanded into a fully loaded two day event that is sure to excite any healthy living enthusiast. Food Revolution Day is an annual, global day of action that celebrates healthy, fresh food and is a day to get both children and adults excited about food and a healthy way of life. It is a day to have fun, enjoy food and share our love of it.
Last year, there were 1260 activities in 74 different countries in honor of this day of healthy eating awareness. Last year’s event in Lake County was a huge success and this weekend, on both May 16th and 17th, the Food Revolution event will be taking place again right here in Lake Zurich.
