About Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution
In 2010 Jamie was awarded the prestigious TED Prize to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.
Armed with all his experience and a real passion to get people cooking from scratch, Jamie headed to Huntington, West Virginia to transform the eating habits and produce and star in his first U.S. primetime network series, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC. The series kicked off an American Food Revolution with more than 630,000 people signing a pledge to support better food in schools. It was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Series.
Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution campaign is now spreading across the USA. In 2011, the team will be looking to open food centers around the country and working hard to improve school food. Having proven himself as a campaigner in the UK, Jamie is fired up about leading the fight against obesity in the USA. The second season of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC is set to air in spring 2011 and will help to refocus the campaign to use cooking skills and fresh food to help end the obesity crisis in America.
