Don’t say Jamie Oliver never did anything to combat childhood obesity.
On the donation page Jamie writes, “For my birthday on May 27th, I’m asking anyone who believes in the Food Revolution for a special gift: help me raise $25,000 to Spark a Food Revolution – Train 1,000 Food Revolutionaries. It’s a great cause that I truly believe can make a difference, and can help fight the battle against obesity and diet-related diseases, the biggest killer in America today.”
He launched the birthday wish campaign last week and said, “I chose Spark a Food Revolution – Train 1,000 Food Revolutionaries because together we can get cooking teachers back in the community, and get children and adults cooking again.”
We’ve written a great deal about Jamie and his Food Revolution because we believe that this is the first in many steps to getting our country thinking about where their food comes from and what they’re putting in their bodies (a reason that many of us have gone veg).
To support Jamie’s work— and we hope you do— visit his Birthday Wish page where you can send him your very own personalized happy birthday card!
