May 19 is Food Revolution Day

We’ve heard the statistics. Obesity has more than doubled worldwide since 1980. For the first time in history, being overweight is killing more people than being underweight. At least 2.8 million adults die each year as a result of being overweight or obese. Where do we begin to tackle such an immense problem?

There is not one single solution, but there are two key paths: getting moving and eating better. We must change our habits and promote better living.

On May 19, Food Revolution Day is a day for people who love food to get back to the basics. To become a conscious community and understand our daily food choices. Learning to cook from scratch is at the heart of the movement. Food Revolution Day can empower everyone to start.

People around the globe will connect with their community through events at homes, schools, restaurants, local businesses, and farmers’ markets. Already 100+ food events and 200+ dinner parties are planned. You can join them or arrange your own. Do you want to bring the revolution to your company or your school? Check out the toolkits.
