National Kale Day Celebrates All-Things Kale

Health experts, culinary enthusiasts, farmers, and everyday people join together to celebrate the increasingly popular produce item.

Today is National Kale Day, a time designated to raise awareness of the myriad health benefits that the cruciferous vegetable offers. In honor of the holiday, a website has been launched that allows kale enthusiasts to learn fun facts and trivia about the vegetable, find kale from local farms, and get recipes that utilize the green, leafy vegetable. There are also live streaming events throughout the day, such as a Kale Health Summit and a Kale Dance Party, where Internet users can join fellow kale enthusiasts around the world as health and culinary experts discuss and celebrate all things kale-related. An online petition has also been started that asks the president to make the first Wednesday of every October the official National Kale Day.
