Responding to Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution campaign, 800,000 people across the globe have signed the petition to ask for better food education and better health prospects. Food Revolution Day on May 19 is a chance for food lovers to come together to share ideas, knowledge and raise awareness about the world’s food issues.
All around the globe, people are working together to make a difference in the food we eat. Food Revolution Day is about a movement to connect with the community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers’ markets.
Jamie Oliver also invited 20 influencers from around the world to help spread the message. Donnie Yen, Asia’s martial arts superstar, joins as Asia’s first representative for the campaign. Besides connecting Yen to be the first representative from the region, DotAsia Organisation is helping coordinate a series of events, including organic food cooking master classes and organic farm carnivals. The company is also launching the Food Revolution Day Asia website and Asian Facebook page.
