National Frozen Food Day
When : Always March 6
National Frozen Food Day celebrates all those yummy foods and snacks in your freezer. Sure, the invention of the freezer made this day possible. But, the methods and techniques of preparing and freezing foods is what makes frozen foods taste great, look great and store in a frozen state until you need them.
For you history buffs, Clarence Frank Birdseye II received the first patent for falsh frozen foods in 1927. Frozen foods first hit store shelves in 1930 in Springfield, Ma. Frozen "Tv dinners" that you heated in the oven were introduced by Swanson in 954. And, who can forget the old frozen "boil-in-bags? The microwave now heats your frozen dinners.
Imagine how your busy life would be if you didn't have a frozen dinner to pop into the microwave in between a late day at work and your evening event. You'd have to stop and make a dinner from scratch!
Thanks to the frozen food industry, you can (and should ) celebrate Frozen Food Day in true frozen food manner:
Did You Remember? Who developed the process? ...... Clarence Frank Birdseye II.
Origin of "National Frozen Food Day":
Congress, by Senate Joint Resolution 193, designated March 6, 1984, as ``Frozen Food Day'' and authorized and requested the President to issue a proclamation upon this occasion.
In Proclamation #5157, President Ronald Reagan said: "Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities." And, so this became a true National day of recognition and celebration.
