Hi there! Welcome back friends. Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day is coming quick. May 16th is the official day and my event is being held on May 17th. Food Revolution Day is all about getting kids excited about food………..Excited about eating a variety of good real food and cooking from real ingredients. It’s all about breaking the chicken nugget and sugary milk cycle and giving our children the tools to make healthy food decisions.
My local event for Food Revolution Day includes a professional cooking lesson for a large group of our local Girl Scouts. I’m very excited about the event and the RSVPs are pouring in. I kept the cost low for the event because I want to find sponsorships for the event and keep the cost low for the girls. I’ll be honest………..I’m in a bit of a panic. This is my first Food Revolution Day event and I have no sponsors yet. I’ve been turned down by a few places that I was sure would invest in the future of food and cooking. I will pull this off, but there is much work to do. If you know of anyone that would like to help out our local event, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I need aprons, patches, paper products, and ingredients for the cooking class. This is an annual event and all sponsors will get world-wide recognition for supporting my local event. You can read more about our event here.
