Food Revolution Day Update... Events and Petition...


If you have been following my Food Revolution Day posts, our official Food Revolution 2015 site just launched- It looks fantastic and I am super excited! We are a 1300 global ambassador strong network and growing, all passionate about changing the way people eat by educating every child about food, empowering families by arming them with the skills and knowledge to cook again, and inspiring everyone to stand up for their rights to better food, which in turn, will fight the epidemic of diet-related diseases. We’re currently facing a global obesity epidemic, with 42 million children under the age of five either overweight or obese across the world. The bottom line is the next generation will live shorter lives than their parents if nothing is done to rectify these alarming stats.

JAMIE OLIVER NEEDS YOUR HELP FIGHTING FOR FOOD EDUCATION!


Watch Jamie's video and read more at http://www.foodrevolutionday.com/.

Jamie’s global petition will call on the leaders and governments of all G20 countries to make practical food education a compulsory part of every school curriculum. 


So along with Jamie I’m asking that you do two simple things – first, please sign this petition to show your support for compulsory practical food education in schools across the world, then, most importantly, share it via your social networks.

It’s essential that we arm future generations with the life skills they urgently need in order to lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. We passionately believe this is every child’s human right and I hope you agree.

If you can help us get millions of people to sign this petition, we can create a movement powerful enough to force all G20 governments to take action. Food education will make a difference to the lives of the next generations, so please help. We can’t do it without you! Sign the petition here. {UPDATE: Two days into the petition launch and we have 149,053 signatures from 146 countries!- WOO HOOOO!!!}

  1. Many halls are created to provide a catering service to specific cultural needs. And it gets very difficult to have a party at a hotel because the catering staff could not cook the traditional meals required by the client. But these LA event venues specialize in specific cultural needs.
