Ready to start (or join) a revolution and stand up for “real” food? This weekend, join British celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, for Food Revolution Day.
As a chef and food activist, Jamie has been a famous cheerleader for healthy eating, teaching people to cook simple, nutritious and tasty fare on his award-winning TV show “Food Revolution” and crusading against unhealthy foods like sugar-filled chocolate and strawberry “pink milk” in school lunch programs.
Now, he’s opening up the party to the world, inviting schools, chefs, restaurants and food lovers world wide to come together and promote the mission for better food and education for everyone. There are tons of ways to get involved, both on Food Revolution Day (which is tomorrow, May 19) and beyond including joining an official event (find one near you here), make a donation to the cause, host an educational dinner party, get your school involved in food education and more. Jamie’s even compiled a bunch of useful resources and ideas to help get you started (check them out here.)
According to this article in the Daily News, more than 800,000 people in 488 cities are planning events. Pretty exciting momentum, wouldn’t you say?
So join the movement! Find out more at the video below, and plug into Food Revolution Day.
