Jamie Oliver Foundation Launches Inaugural Food Revolution Day This Saturday May 19th


A guest post by Daniel Horton.

On Saturday May 19th, the Jamie Oliver Foundation is launching its first-ever ~FOOD REVOLUTION DAY~, a global day dedicated to inspiring, educating, and empowering people everywhere to stand up for real food. Thousands of people from 45 countries have already signed up to take part in events designed to raise awareness on preventing diet-related diseases and to educate people on how to make more healthful food choices. Visit the site to find and create local food events where you can share skills and knowledge about food with your community through cooking classes, gardening tutorials, sessions about starting a food blog, tours of farmers’ markets, and more.

Taking place at the Ferry Building, Food Revolution Day San Francisco is a free, family-friendly day hosted by Epicuring, CUESA, and Sprouts. Tour the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market with a knowledgeable Food Revolution Guide, attend cooking demos, and support garden-based learning and edible education by shopping at the Schoolyard to Market booth. All activities take place at the CUESA Kitchen (the big white tent at the front of the building, north side).

Did you know that the majority of the world’s population is more likely to die from obesity than from hunger? In America, more people die from diet-related diseases every year than drugs, alcohol, and war combined. One hundred percent of Food Revolution Day net funds raised will go to support food education projects for both children and adults through the Jamie Oliver Foundation in the U.S., U.K., and Australia.
