I have been following Food Day and Food Revolution Day activities for a while now. I even posted about Food Day here on the blog before. It is nice to see good initiatives like those brought to light with hard work. Some days ago, I got this kind newsletter email.
Food Day–the nationwide celebration and grassroots campaign for healthy, affordable, and sustainable food is October 24.
But there’s no reason to wait six months to get involved in the food movement! We on the Food Day team have teamed up with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on another important day of action, Food Revolution Day. Jamie has been an important ally helping improve school foods in the U.S., and we’re thrilled to work together this year to keep cooking skills alive.
The second annual Food Revolution Day, a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills, is coming up on May 17 and there are loads of ways to get involved!
Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone. It’s a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources.
Getting involved can be as simple as making a home-cooked dinner for family and friends, teaching someone how to cook or sharing a favorite recipe. Check out this activity pack, filled with ideas for Food Revolution Day, plus some great ideas to make your event that extra bit special!
Whatever you decide to do, no matter how big or small, be sure to add your activity to the global map atwww.foodrevolutionday.com and join the conversation online with @foodrev using the hash tag #FRD2013.
Join us, the Food Revolution Day team and thousands of others across the world in standing up for better food education and help keep cooking skills alive on May 17.
