Food Revolution Day is the Jamie Oliver Foundation and Jamie Oliver Food Foundation’s first-ever global day of action. It is a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world’s food issues. It's about connecting the community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers' markets. The Foundations want to inspire change in people’s food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone.
Dinner and Some Ed is an effort to raise awareness (and to enjoy!) local sustainable food by hosting a meal and showing a TED or TEDx video on food and farming. “Dinner” is a relative term- this can also be done as a brunch, lunch, picnic, or potluck. The key is just to have a computer or a mobile device where you can watch the talks while enjoying delicious, sustainable food.
Dinner and Some Ed came out of a project called Tedibles at TEDActive in Palm Springs, CA, in 2012. It is an effort to bring sustainable food to the extended TED community (meaning anyone who’s ever watched a TED talk).
Food Revolution Day on May 19th is the perfect time to host your first dinner and to join the global movement.
How can you get involved? Simple:
Step 1: Host a Dinner Party on Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day site.
Step 2: Name your dinner “Food Revolution Dinner and Some Ed”
Step 3: Plan a meal
Step 4: Invite friends
Step 5: Watch TED/TEDx videos
Use your imagination when planning your meal - host a potluck, invite your local farmer, or have guests bring recipes along with their dish and include where they sourced their ingredients. Visit Dinner and Some Ed’s What To Do page for ideas and more information.
