On Friday May 20th, Jamie will be asking people across the world to join him, and sign up to the Food Revolution.
This is our annual day of action that brings people together from around the world in thousands of events that celebrate good, fresh, real food. The ongoing global campaign provokes debate and aims to inspire meaningful change in the way our children access, consume and understand food.
This year is a step-change in our approach; it’s not just a day, it’s a revolution!
We’re in the middle of a global health crisis. Right now an astounding 41 million children under five are overweight, while another 159 million are too undernourished to grow properly. We’re failing both our children and future generations by not empowering them with the right food and skills they need to grow healthily and happily.
If you need any further inspiration, here’s Jamie’s 2010 TED talk.
Everyone should have the opportunity to lead happier, healthier lives by learning how to cook nutritious and delicious food from scratch.
The theme for 2016 revolves around not one, but ten basic recipes that act as a ‘Starter Pack of Cooking‘; ten recipes to save your life. These recipes are nutritionally balanced and each one covers a different skill and technique. We’re passionate about creating a movement that can deliver real change and help the world feed the future. These recipes can help to build confidence in the kitchen so that anyone can cook healthy, real food for themselves, and their families.
All the resources for planning local events are now available to download here.
Get involved, and help us to fight obesity and diet-related diseases.
