Food Revolution Day 2014 on Instagram

Today marks the third annual Food Revolution Day, a day of global action to get kids excited about healthy food, learn cooking skills and raise awareness of the importance of better food education.

"I won’t ever stop demanding positive change that gives the next generation a brighter future," says UK chef Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver), who started the campaign in 2012. “It’s a sad fact that our children are getting unhealthier and they’re expected to live shorter lives than their parents. This is morally, socially and financially unacceptable, which is exactly why this record will carry on playing.”

From the UK to the Netherlands to Zambia, more than 100 countries are taking part this year. Jamie and his Food Revolution team are hoping to beat last year’s record of 1,260 events, with an aim of 1 million young people cooking on Friday. Schools and football clubs will be cooking alongside world-renowned chefs, and you can join in the fun by finding an activity in your area, going to a farmers’ market or just cooking a healthy meal at home and sharing your creation on Instagram with the #FDR14 hashtag.

Today marks the second annual Food Revolution Day, a day of action to highlight global food issues and raise awareness of the importance of good food and better food education.

Chef Jamie Oliver (@jamieoliver) started Food Revolution Day in 2012 as a way to spur impactful conversations and community action around supporting local food options and developing basic cooking skills to maximize sustainability and nutrition in the food we eat.

Encouraged by 2012’s enthusiastic reception, Jamie, the Food Revolution team and more than 550 ambassadors around the world are leading more than 1000 events and initiatives today. You can join in the fun by finding an activity in your area, going to a farmers’ market or just cooking a healthy meal at home.
