We are always down to stand up for thought leaders in our food community that are a force and inspiration for positive change. So when the most outspoken and food-justice-passionate Brit we know came calling asking for a dinner party on the fly, we answered!
Jamie Oliver has stamped May 19 as Food Revolution Day, his first-ever worldwide call-to-action to inspire, educate, and empower people everywhere to raise awareness on preventing diet-related diseases, and to arm people with the knowledge and tools to make healthier food choices. This global effort is focused on getting food education back in schools while promoting the importance of eating fresh, local and sustainable food — a cause close to our hearts here at home with our work in Miami-Dade County Public Schools through its Chefs Partnership.
When Jamie’s foundation reached out last week and asked Michael to help get Miami on-board to participate by hosting one of 20 Food Revolution Dinners across the country, we of course said yes!
