Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver is hoping to start a food revolution, with a little help from his friends. For years, Oliver’s Food Revolution Foundation has been encouraging supporters to think more about bringing fresh, wholesome foods to the table. This year, he wants to bring that food to schools. For this year’s Food Revolution Day, Oliver has launched a global campaign and petition to urge school boards around the world to make practical food education compulsory in their curriculums.
Adding to his appeal, Oliver has put down his kitchen utensils to take up a microphone and join in on an original song he commissioned from pop star Ed Sheeran. Oliver says he hopes the video leads to more people taking notice of the cause and signing the petition. “We’ve always made a lot of noise, and we’ve always raised the food conversation but we wanted to push it toward a petition this year,” he told CTV’s Canada AM from England Friday.
