Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. What an amazing show.
Jamie Oliver is a renowned British chef who revolutionized school lunches in Great Britain.
Now he’s taking on Huntington, West Virginia – a town that has been labeled as America’s Unhealthiest City – encouraging and educating the town about the way they eat and how they can eat better to improve their health and to save their lives.
I am thrilled with the education this man is going to be bringing the world through the prime time airwaves.
In case you missed it, you can watch the entire first episode here. It’s going to come on Friday nights, but if ABC keeps up the way they do things now, you should be able to watch it online every week.
Here is part of the description of the show as found on ABC’s website:
Jamie is inviting viewers to take a stand and change the way America eats, in our home kitchens, schools and workplaces with the thought-provoking new series, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, which has a special sneak preview SUNDAY, MARCH 21 10|9c on ABC, followed by a 2-hour premiere on FRIDAY MARCH 26 8|7c.
In the six-part series, Jamie heads to Huntington, West Virginia. Why? Well, Huntington has been called the unhealthiest city in America. Jamie wants to do something about that. Through his efforts in this one town, he hopes to start a chain reaction of positive change across the country.
Jamie says, “There’s an incredible community in Huntington, and I want this experience to be a celebration of what we can achieve when people come together.” Jamie goes on to say, “Wonderful stories will unfold in Huntington, and hopefully this will inspire the rest of the States.” Sounds like a plan!
Needled by local naysayers, challenged by ingrained unhealthy habits and government bureaucracy, and welcomed by some of the most surprising youngsters, families and local leaders, Jamie shows how, in just a few short months, he tried to transform Huntington as a template for the entire country. The stakes? Simply the health of our country’s citizens and the legacy for its children.
