Fast food, also known as junk food, is a type of cuisine that can be prepared, served and consumed quickly. Usually, the term is reserved for food served outside the home in restaurants or street-side eateries.

Quick and Cheap

Food historians believe that the modern day version of fast food, the kind all of us are familiar with today, was first popularized in the United States in the early 20th century. The burger chain White Castle, which first opened its doors in 1921 in Whichita, Kansas, is credited for paving the path for modern day fast food chains.

Fast food has always been a part of urban human history. In the old days, fast food was a quick way for travelers and workers to get their quickly and cheaply meals. Despite this, food sold by vendors and at roadside kiosks had a dubious reputation - in many cultures eating outside the home was seen as an uncultured and undesirable act. Today, however fast food has become an acceptable and often times necessary part of mainstream urban life.

How to Celebrate?

  • Have fast food for all your meals today.
  • Make your own fast food at home – it will be healthier, nutritious and cheaper!
