Today is Food Revolution Day

Today is Food Revolution Day 2015! 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.

Here are four ways you can get involved in Food Revolution Day today:
  1. Join the 1,000,000+ people in 180+ countries who have signed the petition calling for practical food education on all school curriculums,
  2. Check out the new Food Revolution Day song that just launched,
  3. Whip up delicious recipes with your kids or challenge your workmates to a cook-off, and
  4. Share your photos using the hashtag #FoodRevolutionDay.

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.

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 us in celebration of Food Revolution Day today!
