Food Revolution: Join the Party Tonight!
Last night saw the second episode of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC, don’t worry if you missed it though as you can catch up on abc.com.
In last night’s episode, Jamie was finally allowed into a school where he met with some students and was confronted with the frightening reality of childhood diabetes. Jamie also takes on the proprietor of a fast-food spot and tries to convert him to use fresher, healthier ingredients. You can read all about it here.
Check out our ‘Obesity and Diabetes Fact Sheet’ for the incredibly worrying statistics behind diet related diseases.
The Food Revolution viewers have voted with their computers, and in the past week alone we have had a fantastic response to our Sugary Milk campaign with over 30,000 signing Jamie’s petition to stop serving sugary flavored milk in schools and bring back plain white milk.
However, to make a REAL difference we need to find more supporters – so spread the word and tell all your friends and family to join us and take action! They can also show their support with our latest twibbon.
Last week we held our first Twitter party which was a great success! This Wednesday, April 20th, @FoodRevTeam will be hosting another twitter party at 7PM EST, so spread the word and keep an eye out as @JamieOliver will be joining too. We’ll be talking about this week’s episode, focusing on community groups and actions and we will be using the hash tag #FoodRevParty again.
The Food Revolution campaign is rapidly progressing, and so far over 661,000 have signed our main petition. If you haven’t already then sign it and share it and help get it to 1 million!
