Today, thousands of people around the world are taking to the streets, to workplaces, to schools, and to the internet, to celebrate Food Revolution Day.
“Food Revolution Day on 19 May is a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world’s food issues. All around the globe, people will work together to make a difference. Food Revolution Day is about connecting with your community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers’ markets. We want to inspire change in people’s food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone.”
Food Revolution Day was kicked off by the effervescent Jamie Oliver, who has been working hard since his early days as a celebrity chef, to train his passions on creating a better relationship between individuals, communities and food. We have a lot of respect for Jamie’s work on social enterprise projects such as Fifteen, Ministry of Food, and Kitchen Garden Project.
This year, we’ve committed to supporting better food in the workplace, and more food education for individuals in our networks. We’re also wanting to train our creative talents on 19th May, on capturing the buzz in the local food movement. We’re going to be out and about in Wellington, New Zealand, grabbing some of the excitement, colours, textures & delicious looking food at the Hill Street Farmers Market.
The only question left really, is ‘What are you going to be doing for Food Revolution Day?’.
How could you argue with a man this passionate about a better food system?
