May 17, 2013 is Food Revolution Day. This unique day is aimed at raising awareness about the importance of eating, cooking and sharing good, nutritious foods. Food Revolution Day brings joins people together in their homes, schools, communities and workplaces to cook and share kitchen skills, food knowledge and helpful resources.
Food Revolution Day was started by celebrity chef Jaime Oliver to spread the word about the importance of learning and understanding basic cooking skills. With more and more people getting their meals from restaurants or frozen boxes, Oliver saw the need for proper food education. He has several charities in the US, UK and Australia that teach children about nutrition, how food affects their bodies, and how to utilize basic cooking skills to make something truly delicious. All of the funds raised during Food Revolution Day go towards supporting these charities.
Food Revolution Day will be taking place across the globe. Getting involved in your community is easy! Simply visit the official Food Revolution Day website to find an event near you.
