May 16th marks the third annual Food Revolution Day! This global event, started by Chef Jamie Oliver, was started to spread the word about nutrition education, cooking skills and overall education about basic food resources. This year Jamie Oliver has offered a free live cooking lesson on May 16th, 2:00pm BST. You have to register here for the link to the live class or you can watch replays later in the day on Jamie's YouTube Channel.
If you are in South Florida you can visit Dania Beach's PATCH community garden on May 17th from 10-12 to catch a live cooking demonstration and activities for kids. Last year we had a great turnout to this amazing community garden.
Whole Foods will also be providing a cooking demonstration and a nutrition education lesson to the fifth graders at Hammock Pointe Elementary!
So the real questions to ask your kids, and yourself, this year on the
3rd annual Food Revolution Day are:
Do you know where your food comes from?
Do you know why it is important to eat fruits and vegetables?
Do you know how much sugar is in a coke or Gatorade?
Can you pronounce the chemicals and do you know what they are that are in packaged foods?
Rise up and make a change in your community, school and household for the success of our future generations!
