Food Revolution Day is an opportunity to shout about food education, get inspired to cook great food from scratch, and be empowered to help change the global obesity crisis – and it’s only a few days away.
Diet-related diseases are rising at an alarming rate, and it is now more important than ever before to ensure that our children know about food, where it comes from and how to cook it.
Food Revolution Day 2015 is this Friday, and there are still many ways for you to get involved, no matter where you are in the world.
SIGN & SHARE THE PETITION
Worldwide, there are more than 42 million children under the age of 5 who are overweight or obese. With staggering facts like this in mind, Jamie is calling upon the G20 Leaders to get practical cooking on the curriculum for schoolchildren.
You can show your support by signing Jamie’s petition, and most importantly, sharing the petition with friends and family to help spread the word across the globe.
We’re hoping to get signatures from every country in the world, and are still missing a few – can you get someone from one of these countries on board?
- Equatorial Guinea
- Guinea – Bissau
- Sao Tome and Principe
JOIN JAMIE’S ONLINE COOKING LESSON
On May 15, you can cook along with Jamie by joining his online cooking lesson to make this year’s signature Food Revolution Day recipe, the Squash it sandwich. The lesson is perfect for kids, so why not get the students at your local school involved?
Jamie’s lesson will be available to stream on May 15 via foodrevolutionday.com.
COOK A FOOD REVOLUTION DAY RECIPE
A great way to engage with Jamie’s food philosophy on the day is to cook one of the Food Revolution Day recipes for or with your friends and family. There are a load of recipes to choose from, including some of our favourites:

JOIN JAMIE ON THE STREETS OF LONDON
Starting from 9am on Friday 15, Jamie will be leading a team of food revolutionaries through London on our special Food Revolution Day bus. They will be calling on everyone on the streets to get involved and to sign Jamie’s petition. Jamie and the crew will also be reminding Londoners, and the rest of the world through the live stream, why it is so important for our children to have practical food education.
If you are in London you can come along and cheer-on Jamie’s bus and lend your support to the cause. From 9am in Leicester Square the bus will travel to the major areas of London like Trafalgar Square, Whitehall and Regent Street. Then, at 3.30pm, you can join in with Jamie on Twitter as he conducts a Live Twittercast.
No matter where you are in the world you can follow all of the action on the day on the Food Revolution Day website, and on social media with the hashtag #FoodRevolutionDay
