May 19th 2012 Food Revolution Day

The first annual Food Revolution Day was a great success: we raised awareness with a large audience of kids and adults, and hopefully inspired some change in their food habits, along with sharing better food and education. Thanks to everyone who came out to support it, and especially to CUESA for hosting the demos and Sprouts Cooking Club for creating our kids demo. Susie, Maya and I had so much fun working on this, giving tours, arranging demos and meeting everyone associated with it. We can’t wait for next year!

Here’s the blog post written about the San Francisco Food Revolution Day by the lovely Shannon Longnecker of the Jamie Oliver Foundation organization for the Food Revolution Day site.

We here at Epicuring are getting quite excited about the first-ever Food Revolution Day on May 19th. The day was started by the Jamie Oliver Foundation as a way to inspire change in people’s food habits, and to promote better food and education for everyone.  Thousands of people worldwide will participate in events to raise awareness on preventing diet-related diseases, and to arm people with the knowledge and tools to make healthier food choices.

Here in San Francisco, Epicuring is teaming up with CUESA and Sprouts to bring Food Revolution Day to the Ferry Building. Our day is perfect for families and anyone interested in supporting the mission of Food Revolution Day.

Or Host your own Food Revolution Day Event:

While we hope you will stop by our event, we also want to encourage all of you to get involved by hosting your own Food Revolution dinner or event, or supporting other events around your area.

This website makes it super easy to create your own Food Revolution Day event and invite all your friends. Your guests can then “pay admission” (a donation to food education) straight to the website.

Not sure what to make for dinner? Use one of Jamie Oliver’s featured recipes or one written by a member of our global community!

Whatever you are doing on May 19th, we hope you all find some way to celebrate food education. Please share with us on Facebook and tweet your Food Revolution Day activities! @epicuring
