Twitter Revolution: July 4th BBQs And YOUR RevolutionThu 30 Jun 2011
Story by The Food Revolution Team
July 4th is approaching so summer vacations with family and friends, and enjoying some delicious food is on the menu. The Twitter community talked July 4th and BBQs and at the party we wanted to know how you are planning on making the Food Revolution your own over the summer break. Check out our competition winner below – who receives a signed book from Jamie! - and the best tweets from the party.
Remember, from next week - July 5th- our Twitter community will be congregating once a week on Tuesdays for our new weekly format of guest hosted parties! We are really excited to keep the Food Revolution conversations going over the summer and seeing how you are taking the Revolution on in your daily lives and on your vacations.
