What Is Savannah Food Day?

Savannah Food Day is a day-long community event organized by Well Fed Savannah, a free monthly publication featuring (in their own words) stories that foster sustainable living in Savannah. People gather to celebrate sustainable living as it relates to food.

The impressive turnout for #savannahfoodday represents the growing interest in the lowcountry of making our community a shining example of transformed food consciousness and greater health.
