JAMIE IS CALLING FOR AUSTRALIANS TO PARTICIPATE IN HIS ANNUAL FOOD REVOLUTION DAY, TAKING PLACE THIS FRIDAY 17TH MAY IN AN EFFORT TO CREATE MORE AWARENESS OF REAL FOOD AND FOOD EDUCATION. FOOD REVOLUTION DAY IS A MOVEMENT THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE WHO LOVE FOOD TO COME TOGETHER TO SHARE INFORMATION, TALENTS AND RESOURCES AND ALSO TO PASS ON THEIR KNOWLEDGE AND BRING FOOD SKILLS TO LIFE, ALL IN AN EFFORT TO IMPROVE LONG TERM HEALTH.
While Jamie is the driving force inspiring millions around the world to join the Food Revolution, he is just one man and needs everyone’s help to drive this real food movement forward. A number of well-known Australians have stepped forward to show their support of his cause including Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Matt Preston and Shane Warne.

Jamie’s global crusade is growing and the message now reaches communities all around the world. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness and ultimately funds, for Jamie’s Foundation’s projects, with Jamie’s Ministry of Food being the focus in Australia. The Good Guys partnered with Jamie Oliver, to bring Jamie’s Ministry of Food to Australia in 2010 and now has four kitchens operating around the country, with plans to grow.
