Jamie's Food Revolution Community Events in Toronto...


The Food Revolution is a global year-round campaign. Every May, Food Revolution Day takes place to celebrate success, raise awareness and invite more people, businesses and governments to join the ongoing revolution. More than 2000 ambassadors in 115 countries are currently planning events, both big and small. 



This year it is on May 20th-- just around the corner. Here are some local community events hosted by our Toronto Food Revolution Ambassadors:

Join Toronto Food Revolution Ambassadors Mardi Michels and MaryCatherine Anderson are hosting a parent-child cooking class for ‪#‎FoodRevolution‬ Day this year. Join them on Friday, May 20th at 5.30pm at the beautiful St Lawrence Market Kitchen to celebrate Food Revolution Day 2016. This year, the theme is ‪#‎FeedtheFuture‬ and Jamie Oliver's put together a Starter Pack of recipes – ten delicious, nutritionally balanced recipes, each covering a different skill and technique that can give anyone the confidence to cook good, real, healthy meals for themselves and their families, for now and the future. Jamie has spoken about the idea of ten recipes to save your life since his TED talk in 2010.

During this class, we'll learn how to make some "must know" dishes that are easy to make and much tastier than store-bought - dishes kids will love to eat and make:


Super smoothies that burst with colour and flavour
Hummus and flatbread with a colourful array of crudités
Minestone soup

After we have finished cooking, we'll all sit down to enjoy the meal together, family-style! Kids will also make their very own customised granola cereal to take home and enjoy the next day!

This event is made possible thanks to the generous support of Sobeys, KitchenAid Canada, Harper Collins Canada and Bernardin.

Participants will receive a swag bag containing items generously donated by Sobeys, KitchenAid Canada, Harper Collins Canada and Bernardin and one lucky participant will win a NEW KitchenAid Canada Torrent Blender ($599.99 RRP)!
