We wanted to post a sneak peek for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, airing this Friday at 8PM EST on ABC.
Here’s a brief description of the show:
“Jamie has made a new series for American TV about food – how families eat, what kids get at school and why, like the UK, the diet of processed food and snacks is causing so many health and obesity problems. The series was filmed in Huntington, West Virginia. Jamie’s challenge was to see if he can get a whole community cooking again. He worked with the school lunch ladies and local families to get everyone back in the kitchen and making tasty meals with fresh ingredients – no packets, no cheating. He’s started a Food Revolution: to get people all over America to reconnect with their food and change the way they eat.”
It is a truly wonderful concept! Jamie is a British chef, author and philanthropist who has made it his goal to educate and inspire the world to eat better, feel better and live longer. His projects in Europe have revolutionized not just school lunches, but the relationship people have with their dinner (and breakfast, and lunch.) Jamie’s campaigns have helped numerous schools, families and individuals in the UK. From the looks of it, Jamie is met with much resistance…let’s hope he can break through and inspire not just Huntington, but the rest f us too!
