Teaching children about eating, inspiring families to start cooking again and battling obesity together.That is what the British cook Jamie Oliver has been advocating for years. He focuses primarily on children and young people with the Jamie Oliver Foundation.
Big Rig Mobile Kitchen Classroom
In 2013 and 2014, the Jamie Oliver Foundation will tour with the Big Rig Mobile Kitchen Classroom through California. The Foundation wants to stimulate healthy cooking and eating in the local community with forty weeks of free lessons and workshops in these mobile kitchens. Anyone seven years or older can register for a workshop in the ‘Big Rig’. The foundations of food are instilled here. For example, the difference between vegetables. Jamie Oliver once showed a bunch of tomatos to one of the children, to which the child answered: ‘Those are potatos.’
Research from 2008 showed that almost half the inhabitants above the age of 20 in Huntington (West Virginia) in the United States suffered from obesity. There were more pizza restaurants in Huntington than sport schools in the whole of West Virginia. The number of people with diabetes and heart problems was enormous and the mortality rate of relatively young people was high. These figures make Huntington the most unhealthy city in the world. That was why Jamie Oliver began his worldwide Food Revolution there in 2010, in a school canteen of course.
In the meantime, a lot has changed in Huntington. The school canteen where Jamie Oliver began his project uses fresh products exclusively and serves a healthy meal to children on a daily basis. Eight different municipalities in West Virginia now use this as a model and the ‘Huntington model’ is used in the kitchens. And the cooks from the school canteen in Huntington who didn’t want to know anything about Jamie’s plans at first now train cooks at other schools.
Since 2012, there is an annual Food Revolution Day , on which Jamie Oliver demands attention for healthy eating, cooking and health worldwide. On this day, it’s all about sharing knowledge, learning from each other, cooking together, getting to know new products and spreading the importance of healthy food. Everything to prevent a generation growing up that cannot cook. Large dinners are organised, cooking takes place at schools or children go out into the country in search of products. In the coming year, the Food Revolution Day will be organised on 16 May.
You can become an ambassador to bring people together on a local level and organise an event.

Teaching children about eating, inspiring families to start cooking again and battling obesity together.That is what the British cook Jamie Oliver has been advocating for years. He focuses primarily on children and young people with the Jamie Oliver Foundation. Because as a result of Western diseases, such as obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases, for the first time in history it does not appear to be self-evident that young people will grow older than their parents.
He does not limit himself to Great Britain or one project. He rolls his vision across the world like a snowball in order to create a revolution: Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution . He began in Great Britain, where he tackled school canteens. He wanted to reduce the use of ready-made products and stimulate cooking with fresh products. Everything in order to improve the health of children and teach them what healthy food is. He subsequently rolled out this project to the United States. He got his own television show there, in which he demanded attention for healthy food in school canteens for two years. Meanwhile, he worked in school canteens and taught the cooks another way of cooking. In the beginning, he encountered a lot of resistance, but he ultimately established a totally new model for cooking in school canteens. He won an Emmy for his television show and the TED prize for his Food Revolution project.
