At least 2.8 million adults around the world die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. Kids are growing up overweight and malnourished from a diet of processed foods.

All funds raised for Food Revolution Day go to support food education projects for children and adults through Jamie’s foundation work in the U.S., UK and Australia.

Anyone can host or attend an event for Food Revolution Day - schools, businesses, restaurants, chefs, bloggers, parents, grandparents and youth - as a way to learn more about cooking or share your skills and knowledge about food with your community.
