Where did food holidays come from?

Food & beverage holidays stem from basically anywhere food & beverages are enjoyed — so pretty much all over the world. The aforementioned National Pie Day was created in 1986 by the American Pie Council and has taken place every year since. National Men Make Dinner Day on November 1 was started by Canadian radio host Sandy Sharkey, with an important message about gender roles in mind.

Though culinary holidays come from a mixture of organizations, influencers, and brands, they offer a common message — food is amazing. Food holidays are an excuse for folks from all cultures and walks of life to bond over a shared palette, and enjoy each other's company.

So throw on your apron, pre-heat your oven, and join us in celebrating the one the one thing that brings us all to the table.
The aforementioned National Pie Day was created in 1986 by the American Pie Council — a grassroots organization dedicated to preserving America's pie-making traditions— and has taken place every year since. National Men Make Dinner Day (Nov. 1st) was started by Canadian radio host Sandy Sharkey, with an important message about gender roles in mind. And no prizes for guessing the force behind National Oreo Cookie Day (March 6th).

Though culinary holidays come from a mixture of organizations, influencers, and brands, they offer a common message — food unites. Food holidays are an excuse for folks from all cultures and walks of life to bond over a shared palette, and enjoy each other's company.

So throw on your apron, pre-heat your oven, and join us in celebrating the role food plays in good living.
