#FoodRevolution Day is upon us!

Bucky Box is supporting Food Revolution DayToday, 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.

 

We decided we wanted to get involved, to lend our voice and our creativity to the Food Revolution, to support the vision of a global population which is better educated about food.  We joined Google, Spotify, IDEO, & Twitter, in pledging our company’s part in the food revolution – after all, we’re all about creating the tools for a better food system.

Bucky Box has pledged to be part of the Food Revolution - this year we'll be capturing the Farmer's Market through the lens.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?

 

You can follow our day’s adventures on Facebook & Twitter – and we’ve fired up a Storify too to celebrate the #FoodRevolution internet action.

Locally sourced ingredients make up the topping for a #FoodRevolution Day celebration

Our photos of #FoodRevolution Day are up on Facebook here now.

#TEDxMan : Changing The Way We Eat

Changing The Way We Eat - a TEDxManhattan conference on the food system**UPDATE: Videos from TEDxManhattan are now online here.**

Wow, what an absolutely amazing day I’ve had with my laptop, the TEDxManhattan conference, and the twittersphere!

As I woke up at 4.30am to watch the TEDx conference livestream, I don’t have the energy to give you a full write up just now, I did curate this storify feed of my favourite tweets from the event to give you a feeling for the event, and if you watch the Changing The Way We Eat website, there will be all the videos up soon!

Make sure you don’t miss Stephen Ritz from the Green Bronx Machine!

Enjoy!!
