List of commemorative days for foods?

Just this month, we have 3/14 Pi(e) Day, 3/21 Macaron Day, and 3/25 Waffle Day, that I know of. Is there a comprehensive list of food-related commemorative days? The only result I came up with via googling was a very incomplete and not food-specific Wikipedia list. For party- and meal-planning purposes it would be fun to have such a list.
There are lots of sites that list Honorary XYZ Day, some food, some not. The first link below is not strictly food. The second one excludes some that I would consider obvious.
There's also National XYZ Month. I think January is National Soup Month, among other things. Although I've Googled "weird food holidays," "national food months," and "bizarre food holidays" to varying degrees of success, I've never found a totally comprehensive site. But in a pinch, you can Google the particular date you're talking about and see if it kicks anything up.
If anyone could do it, you'd be the one to get such a thing organized!
Also, the American Indian names for the full moon months is another lovely way to theme a party. There are several variations on that, as well. As I recall, one month may be Strawberry Moon.
And always remember...Wednesday is Prince Spaghetti Day (or if you live on the West Coast, Red's Tamale Day)!
