Jamie Oliver has declared that May 19 be Food Revolution Day, with a goal to improve our diets by eating healthier, less-processed foods. Whether it’s hosting a dinner party or attending one, or participating in a food-related event, Oliver wants us to start a movement in each of our communities.

According to Oliver’s website, obesity has more than doubled since 1980 and at least 2.8 million adults around the world die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. What’s even scarier is that forty-two million children under five are already obese.

Oliver says, “There are so many incredible people working on this issue, so we wanted to provide a platform for anyone with skills and knowledge around food — chefs, gardeners, food bloggers, food educators, etc. — to offer experiences/events (classes, seminars, tours, sessions) to kick start a real food movement in their community.”

By heading to FoodRevolutionToday.com, you can sign-up for events to attend by zip code, or create one yourself. The hope is that these grassroots efforts will encourage people to improve their diet and to learn more about food issues in their community.
