Food Revolution Day 2014
WHAT: Food Revolution Day is a day of global action to keep cooking skills alive. It’s about celebrating the importance of cooking good food and raising awareness of how it impacts our health and happiness – we believe that starts with getting kids excited about food by making cooking fun and inspiring a love of food that will last a lifetime.
Food Revolution Day is a campaign by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation in the UK and USA, and The Good Foundation in Australia. To date, 74 countries have taken part and over 900 ambassadors are championing our cause worldwide.
WHY: Learning how to cook from scratch is one of the most valuable skills a child can ever learn. This knowledge used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now, with an over- reliance on unhealthy convenience foods, millions of people lack the confidence and even the most basic skills to cook for themselves and their families. By educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, we’re equipping them and the generations to come, with the skills they need to live healthier lives.
HOW: We want as many people as possible to get involved in showing children how important it is to understand where food comes from, how to cook it and how it affects our bodies – it can be as simple as helping a child to cook a meal from scratch or getting them to try a new ingredient.
