Did you know? The first post we ever published on Scoop over three years ago, was about Jamie Oliver and the way he was trying to change they way we cook and eat. Jamie’s Food Revolution has grown over those years (just like us) and we are proud to act as local Ambassadors in Melbourne, for the upcoming Food Revolution Day.
Now we are the first to admit that Jamie doesn’t always get it 100% right, just as we said back in our original post. He certainly ruffled a few feathers with our US dietitian colleagues for overlooking their progress. But he does have the 100% right vision, as idealistic as that may be. And he does have an unstoppable energy and passion for cooking skills, as a path to set nutrition free. And that’s exactly what we want to see. So we ask you to show your support for culinary education and join in our Scoop Nutrition Food Revolution Day Challenge on May 17.
What is it?
Food Revolution Day is a global day of action aimed to inspire people to get cooking and champion better food skills for people of all ages.
