There’s always a reason to celebrate, especially with food! That’s why we’ve put together our own fun list of March food holidays. We usually take a look at food holidays every month to plan out our editorial calendar (and our home menus!).
So, whether you’re just looking for a March holidays to celebrate, teaching tools or homeschool fun, or scheduling out your own social media calendar, here’s a list of food holidays to plan for throughout the month of March.
What Food Month Is March?
Some food celebrations last the whole month long, especially when it comes to awareness campaigns like nutrition or caffeine. And March has quite a few! Here’s a list of March food holidays that last the whole month long!
- National Celery Month: Did you know celery actually has a lot of nutrition, including potassium and folate? Celebrate with our green smoothie with celery.
- National Noodle Month: Did you know there are over 300 types of noodles in the world? Spring may be on the horizon, but those cooler weather days call for a bowl of noodle soup!
- National Nutrition Month: January might be the month for New Year Resolutions, but March is the month to get back on track with your nutrition before summertime.
- National Flour Month: Bake some fresh homemade Irish Soda Bread to celebrate National Flour Month and St. Patrick’s Day!
- National Peanut Month: It’s National Peanut Month, and there’s also a National Peanut Butter Lovers Day! For something unique, try making boiled peanuts at home.
- National Caffeine Awareness Month: We can’t get by without our daily morning cup of Joe. One of the books I enjoyed the most about caffeine was Michael Pollan’s, “How Caffeine Created The Modern World.” It’s a short 2-hour audio book, and worth listening to during your morning routine or commute.
- National Sauce Month: Sauces are so good, and so trendy! There are a lot of small batch local sauce makers in just about every major city. Find one close to use and try a new sauce during the month of March.
