ON 17 MAY, MAKE A STAND AND
GET THE WORD OUT THERE – JOIN US IN SENDING A UNITED MESSAGE TO THE WORLD.
Friday 17 May 2013 is Food Revolution Day, a global day of action for people everywhere to come together to celebrate real food and learn where it comes from and how to cook it.
Learning how to cook is one of the most valuable skills you can ever learn. These skills used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now millions of people lack even the most basic skills.
We need to get back to basics: cook and eat fresh, local produce; share cooking skills and food knowledge and join forces within communities to get as many people involved as possible.
We need the world to take notice – we need to shout our message out loud, together and all at once.
Join Jamie Oliver, the Food Revolution global community and many more in reaching out to people around the world, at the same time with one, single message – sign up to this Thunderclap.

Jamie Oliver and the Food Revolution Day team want to change the way people eat by giving them the skills and knowledge to cook again, as well as motivating people to stand up for their right to better food. Food Revolution Day aims to educate and inspire people everywhere to cook and enjoy better food and empower them to demand better food standards and improved food education from governments, schools and food manufacturers.
