BIGGER, LOUDER, TASTIER – JAMIE OLIVER’S
FOOD REVOLUTION DAY 2013 REACHES 75 COUNTRIES
Food Revolution Day 2013 will be held on Friday 17th May and is already much bigger than 2012 when Jamie Oliver started this annual day of awareness for better food education and cooking skills across the world.
With more events in more countries than 2012, more ambassadors working hard to build awareness of food education from Argentina to Slovakia, from France to the Philippines and all points in between, and increasing support from a growing community of celebrities and top chefs, Food Revolution Day 2013 will truly put the better food message on the map like never before.
The global focus of the Food Revolution will be London where Jamie Oliver will be hosting a day of food, fun and surprises at a street party outside his restaurant, Fifteen in Shoreditch. A global competition with Prizeo (www.prizeo.com/jamie) has already been announced where one lucky winner and a friend will be flown from wherever they are in the world to cook with Jamie in London on Food Revolution Day. ( The Lucky Lady is being flown from Australia for this amazing experience, sadly it wasn’t me)
There will also be a live Google+ hangout planned for the day, during which Jamie will be connecting with the global community, and in addition the Food revolution team are organising a FRD Thunderclap to send a united message to the world (www.thunderclap.it/foodrevolutionday)
In addition, the Fifteen event will include cooking classes, food stalls, demos by top chefs including Jamie himself, and a few celebrity surprises.
Meanwhile, Jamie’s charities, partners, communities, schools, workplaces and over 550 local ambassadors are currently planning events all over the world. These ambassadors, many of them local chefs, bloggers, teachers, nutritionists or simply parents wanting to get involved in improving food for their kids, have all given up time to plan street markets, school cooking classes, workshops, foodie tours, dinners and anything at all to get the message of better food to a wide local audience.
Jamie Oliver says: “Food Revolution Day is all about people power. I was amazed last year when we managed to get over 1,000 events organized across the world in only a few weeks but this year, the response has truly been incredible. Food Revolution has reached 75 countries which shows that the demand for better food education is a global phenomenon.
“For me, Food Revolution Day is all about building better relationships with great food and whether that’s through hosting a big event like a farmers’ market or a small dinner with freshly prepared food, it’s all about giving people knowledge and confidence to cook from fresh ingredients and to make better choices about what they feed themselves and their families.
Food is a joy and we should celebrate it. But it’s important that we have the understanding to know what we can eat every day and what we should save as an occasional treat. I hope that all over the world on May 17th, people embrace great food and that many thousands of people come away from Food Revolution Day with a better understanding of food and cooking.”
I’m sharing this as I support the idea and wish Jamie the best of luck in the fight to enhance what we eat and our children
