Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution
Jamie Oliver, also known as the Naked Chef, is trying to make a difference in America. He believes that every child in America has the right to fresh, nutritious school meals, and that every family deserves real, honest, wholesome food.
"This Food Revolution is about changing the way we eat. We need to start cooking again, to make sure our children don't grow up on a diet of processed food, at school or at home, and so they won't have to battle obesity and diet-related illnesses when they grow up. Cooking is one of the most important skills a person can have and it has been proven that families who cook together eat better. A small change in your kitchen in could save the life of someone you love. America needs to do something now, before it's too late." Jamie Oliver
