On May 15, the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation will celebrate Food Revolution Day, an annual event championing better food and nutrition awareness, education, and access for all. This year, the Food Revolution is fighting for food education for every child, and The Family Dinner Project is joining in to lend our support.
We believe that learning about food and becoming comfortable with cooking skills from an early age can help lead to more high-quality family dinners lifelong, and that the opportunities for conversation and connection around both cooking and sharing a meal can be a gateway to realizing all of the many benefits of family dinners. In particular, the act of cooking together with a loved one and sharing stories and memories during that time can help to make shared mealtimes meaningful and valuable for all.
In recognition of Food Revolution Day, we invite all families to participate in a special #familydinnerforward campaign about the shared experiences that can be had in the kitchen:
We can’t wait to see your photos and hear your stories!
