EASO is delighted to partner with Jamie Oliver and the Food Revolution team to support a new campaign – across Europe and around the world – to focus on food. 20 May 2016, Food Revolution Day has become a key moment in this broad scale social movement to debate and encourage systems’ change along with individual efforts to change the world of food.
“What this means is that from 20 May 2016, the “day” becomes our moment to tell brilliant stories about what has been achieved and bang the drum as loudly as we can about what still needs to be done.” Read the blog from the Food Revolution team on the EASO website.
The Food Revolution has started!
Food Revolution Day, Jamie Oliver’s annual day of action, is coming up on 20 May, but this year it’s going to be a little different.
Jamie is passionate about fighting to provide a healthier, happier world for children through better, more nutritious food. He believes that we can only achieve this by coming together as one united voice and lobbying governments to make real, lasting, meaningful change to the way our kids access, consume and understand food. So, this year, he’s taking the Food Revolution full-time.
Instead of just focussing on one day in May, Jamie and the team are launching an ongoing, year-round Food Revolution that will provoke debate, inspire communities, and lobby governments and businesses to make positive, lasting change in order to give our children better access to good, nutritious food.
What this means is that from 20 May 2016, the “day” becomes our moment to tell brilliant stories about what has been achieved and bang the drum as loudly as we can about what still needs to be done.
An ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way we access, consume and understand food.
We’re in the middle of a global health crisis. Right now, 41 million children under five are overweight, while another 159 million are too undernourished to grow properly. We’re failing our children and future generations by not arming them with the right food and skills they need to grow healthily and happily.
Meaningful change is built from the ground up. We celebrate the joy of food, we educate people and communities and we inspire them to come together as one voice to lobby governments and businesses to make positive, lasting change.
The Food Revolution is a global, year-round campaign. Every May, we hold Food Revolution Day to celebrate success, raise awareness and invite more people, businesses and governments to join the ongoing Revolution.
