Food Revolution Day: May 17th

Yesterday I shared my BIG news that I've decided to cut out the meat from my diet and that I intend to take it one day at a time.
I left you with a little teaser about Food Revolution Day...
**I encourage EVERY Blogger to SHARE this information** 
Here's an explanation from the website:

What is Food revolution Day?

Food Revolution Day on 17 May is a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills. It's a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone by focusing on three simple actions – cook it, share it, live it. The first Food Revolution Day took place on 19 May 2012 with more than 1,000 events in 664 cities across 62 countries. Find out all about Food Revolution Day 2012 here.

Who is Taking Part?

Food Revolution Day is open to any individual, school, business and organisation that wants to take part in hosting or attending activities in their local area on 17 May. Many local activities will also be organised by our voluntary Food Revolution ambassadors who play a leadership role across the world in connecting individuals, schools, businesses and organisations at a local level. Get in touch with your nearest ambassador by visiting the Food Revolution Day team’s webpage. If you want to get involved, raise awareness or fundraise for better food education and cooking skills, then why not organise an activity in your local area. Follow the link to download the Food Revolution Day Activity Guide for loads of help and ideas. If you simply wish to attend an activity near you, visit our interactive activities map to find out where they’re taking place. 

Why have a Day of Action?

Cooking skills used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now millions of people lack even the most basic cooking skills. We need to get back to basics: to cook and eat fresh local produce; to share cooking skills and food knowledge; to join forces within communities and get as many people involved as possible. Food Revolution Day is our opportunity to get the world to focus on the importance of good food and essential cooking skills, by rallying our efforts to empower people with better cooking skills and to inspire them to cook fresh food from scratch. 

Food Revolution Day is happening all over the world! Will you join us?

  1. What a great idea. I have so many recipes passed down from my Mom. My boys aren't interested in cooking, but as they go off to college over the next few years, I'm hopeful they'll rethink and be open to what I might be able to pass down through them.

  7. It's so scary how little people know how about cooking anymore. It seems like everyone goes out to eat for almost every meal.
