Food Revolution
GET UPDATES FROM Food Revolution
 
We want to revolutionize the way people eat by educating every child about food, empowering families by arming them with the skills and knowledge to cook again, and inspiring everyone to stand up for their rights to better food; which in turn will fight the epidemic of diet-related diseases. Through our food education programs we aim to build an army of trained Food Revolution instructors to put cooking back into the community, provide the first step in getting kids to taste fresh fruit and vegetables and to equip individuals and families with the skills they need to know how to cook with fresh ingredients. We want to empower people to incorporate a variety of balanced meals into their lives, replacing processed foods and sustainably changing their eating habits ultimately fighting obesity from their home kitchens.
