British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver along with chef Kunal Kapur and Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez call for people around the world to sign up for the 'Food Revolution' on May 20,2016.
With the initiative, Oliver aims to get the attention of governments at the World Health Assembly meeting in Geneva on May 23 to tackle the child nutrition crisis.
‘The Food Revolution is an initiative by celebrity chef Jamie Oliver to create a worldwide campaign to discuss, debate and adopt a healthier way of eating.’
AdvertisementIn a move that Oliver has called a "game-changer," he and numerous other well-known personalities will take to Facebook Live on May 20, for a seven-hour cooking marathon, read a statement.
The aim is to encourage people to join them in a full-scale, global food revolution - a major part of which will be giving people the power to lobby their own governments to fight diet-related disease.
Oliver said: "This Food Revolution Day, we are going to give governments that little extra nudge by running the longest-ever Facebook Live campaign, getting millions of people involved from all around the globe. The world is crying out for action, and there has never been a better time to make changes to save millions of lives."
The "Roy" star also says it is great to be associated with a good cause.
She said: "It's particularly important to us here in India because we are in the middle of a child nutrition crisis...If we are going to combat the nutrition crisis we have to do it as one."
Supporting the food revolution in India, The AkshayaPatra Foundation will serve its two billionth meal in a school in Guwahati, Assam.
The partnership with Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution is led by AkshayaPatra UK.
They will raise some points like: help to make 2016 a breakthrough year on child nutrition, ensure Indian leadership is present at the World Health Assembly meeting and the UN General Assembly in September.
