Kale is a nutrient-dense, delicious superfood that can aid in our common goal of turning around America’s health crisis. "National Kale Day" is a celebration that aims to increase awareness, access, and education about the positive health benefits of eating a more nutrient-dense, plant-based diet. We hope to empower America to grow, eat, and share kale while supporting local farmers and school gardens. With tools for educators, health care providers, and parents, we will facilitate a national, annual celebration of kale.
We propose that "National Kale Day" will be the first Wednesday in October (October 2, 2013) and will continue to be an annual celebration of eating, growing, and sharing kale throughout America.
We ask for your support and that you proclaim the first Wednesday every October National Kale Day.
