How Did You Celebrate Food Revolution Day?Tue 22 May 2012
Story by The Food Revolution Day Team
On Saturday, communities in over 660 cities in 62 countries gathered together and celebrated the first ever Food Revolution Day. In the 1,000+ events that took place across the world, people shared their knowledge on food and nutrition, taught their favorite recipes, educated one another about food choices, and inspired each other to stand up for real food and demand better.
