Oct 22, 2011, 06:21 ET from Soyfoods Association of North America

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Food Day is Monday, October 24th and the Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) will be joining various representatives from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and other food-related organizations to celebrate at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.  

SANA, a USDA Community Partner, will be using the event to debut its newest community educational tool, Soyfoods on Any Plate.  Those in attendance at the Archives' event will receive the first copies of Soyfoods on Any Plate which features two quick, easy and delicious soy-based recipes on a creative and durable placemat.  The project goal is to aid Americans in diversifying their plates through healthy, tasty and easy meal ideas inspired by USDA's MyPlate.

Soyfoods on Any Plate will also be promoted at the Food Day Chicago STOP Foodborne Illness event on October 24.  At that event, the public will be invited to spin the Food Safety Trivia Wheel in hopes of winning prizes which include the Soyfoods on Any Plate placemats.  

Following the events, Soyfoods on Any Plate placemats and recipes will be available online at www.soyfoods.org.  A limited quantity of complimentary placemats will be available to individuals and community nutrition educators.  Those interested in placemats or looking for more information on this project should e-mail SANA Director of Communications, Erica Rose at health@soyfoods.org.
