In 2010 Jamie Oliver was awarded the prestigious TED Prize to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity. Armed with over 7 years campaigning experience in the UK and a real passion to get people cooking from scratch, Jamie headed to America, first to Huntington, West Virginia then to Los Angeles, California in 2011, in both cases impacting great change and leaving a legacy from which the Food Revolution continues to grow.

In 2012, Jamie and the team worked tirelessly to improve school food, inspire better food education, galvanize supporters and get as many people cooking as possible.

Amazingly with just a 6 week lead in, over 1,000 events took place in 664 cities across 62 countries!

The 2nd Food Revolution Day will be held on May 17 2013.
