It kicked off at the Sydney Opera House this March as Tefal partner Jamie Oliver staged a #FoodRevolution – petitioning for food education to be added to all curricula globally. The worldwide obesity issue has fueled the fire behind this passion project as we’re currently in an era where, for the first time, there are more people who are overweight than underweight.
“My wish is to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”
Take action and Join the revolution:
- Sign the global petition at change.org where Jamie Oliver will be calling on the leaders and governments of all G20 to make food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum.
- There are plenty of ways you can get involved, from whipping up delicious recipes with kids, hosting a foodie event in your community or challenging your workmates to a cook-off to sharing your photos on the #foodrevolutionday via social media.
- Tell your local school. Get your local school to register online, download the teaching materials and get involved in Jamie’s exclusive cooking lesson online on Food Revolution Day
