Egremont takes on a food revolution

Cutting the onionJAMIE Oliver’s food revolution has made its way to Egremont to promote eating well, healthily and right.

The food revolution is an ongoing, global campaign to provoke debate and inspire positive, meaningful change in the way children access, consume and understand food.

Sarah King, local food revolution ambassador, brought the revolution to Egremont Market Hall for the Egremont Farmers Market on Friday May 20.

On the day Sarah cooked up some hearty and healthy meals, using locally sourced food – some even from other Farmers’ Market stall holders.

She held food demonstrations and gave talks about the importance of the food revolution.

Sarah said: “This is my first year as a Food Revolution Ambassador and I’m passionate about the ways that real food cooked from scratch can improve our health. It was great to see people come along to the Market Hall to have a chat, get some recipes and try some good food.”

The Food Revolution is a global, year-round campaign. Every May, Food Revolution Day takes place to celebrate success, raise awareness and invite more people, businesses and governments to join the ongoing Revolution.

More than 2,000 ambassadors in more than 115 countries are currently planning events, both big and small.
