Everything we do is about educating, empowering and inspiring people to make better food choices. We want to arm people with the tools to make those choices, because we believe that better food education means a better life. 100% of net funds raised through Food Revolution Day will go to food education projects in the UK, US and Australia, see our promise below. We want you to stand up for real food and unite everyone to be able to raise food standards, provenance and bring back food education around the world.
Where the Funds Go
Funds will go towards Jamie’s foundation projects in the UK, US and Australia. You can find out more about the projects you are supporting under The Work of the Foundation. This year we are also implementing the Food Education Box project in UK and US schools or youth organisations. Each box will include a particular fruit or vegetable along with a recipe, fun facts and lesson plan, to provide the first step in getting kids to taste fresh fruits and vegetables, while learning about where they come from and why they are good for you. If you don’t live in the UK or US, there will be a free digital version of the Food Education Box available to download from August.
See an example of a food education card from the box.
The Work of the Foundation
Jamie’s foundation projects span three continents. In the UK, the Jamie Oliver Foundation oversees the Fifteen Apprenticeship Programme, Ministry of Food and Kitchen Garden Project. In the US, the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation works through the Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, and in Australia the Ministry of Food works in partnership with The Good Foundation. Your donation will go to these food education projects through the amazing work of the teams in partnership with their local, national and global allies. We set out to instil positive eating habits that will last a lifetime; to make good, clear information available; and to encourage and teach individuals to get cooking from scratch.
100% of net funds raised, after deduction of 3rd party transaction charges, will go to food education projects in the UK, USA and Australia. You will be able to see the impact of your donations after Food Revolution Day, we can’t wait to show you that standing up for real food on Food Revolution Day can make the difference in bringing back food education.
