Food Awareness Days 2017

There are so many food awareness days, that sometimes it’s difficult to keep abreast. To try and help, I’ve pulled together this calendar of food awareness days. This is definitely work in progress as some dates for 2017 have yet to be confirmed. If there are any food or drink awareness days that I’ve missed, then please do drop me a line
