Food Revolution Day is in one week

Food Revolution Day is coming up on May 15! Food Revolution Day is British chef Jamie Oliver’s global day of action to put food education back on the school curriculum. By educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we can equip them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives.

Two years ago on Food Revolution Day, Food Day launched the Get Food Education in Every School national initiative with Jamie Oliver Food Foundation (USA) to raise awareness about the critical importance of food education in schools across America. We believe that food education should be available for every child, in every school in America.

There are plenty of ways to get involved in Food Revolution Day on May 15, from whipping up delicious recipes with your kids to challenging your workmates to a cook-off to sharing your photos using the hashtag #FoodRevolutionDay on social media. And please join the hundreds of thousands of people that have signed the petition calling for practical food education on all school curriculums.
By fighting for every child’s right to food education, we can help to reverse the rise in obesity levels and diet-related disease. Join the celebration of Food Revolution Day on May 15.
