Every year the activist chef and Tefal’s partner Jamie Oliver hosts Food Revolution Day, a global day of action for the right to good food and essential cooking skills. Thousands of people all around the world are involved.
“My wish is to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity” – says Jamie. By educating children about food in a fun and engaging way, Jamie Oliver wants to equip them with the basic skills they need to lead healthier, happier lives, for themselves and their future families.
“EVERY CHILD WILL BE TAUGHT ABOUT FOOD – WHERE IT COMES FROM, HOW IT EFFECTS THEIR BODY, AND HOW TO COOK IT”
