A tremendous honour to work with Jamie 🙏 #Repost @foodrevtoronto

It’s been a while since we updated this page and today we’re sad to be writing to let you know the Jamie Oliver Foundation has decided to end the current Food Revolution Ambassador programme. As as we say goodbye, we wanted to thank YOU for following, liking, commenting and supporting our work in and around Toronto since 2012.
The Ambassador Programme has been enormously successful worldwide in creating a food revolution. Our team of Ambassadors has campaigned around food issues, taught others to cook, and generally, worked towards creating a healthier and happier world.
Over the last 15 years, since the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation was created and over the past six years of the Ambassador programme, we’ve seen some incredible strides forward to the global food policy and landscape. * There have been five inspiring food revolution days which have impacted food policy and programmes all over the world * In 2014, food education became a compulsory part of the UK school curriculum for key stages one to three, for the first time (now, let’s work on making it compulsory in Canada) * Jamie’s Home Cooking Skills (an online course which some of our Ambassadors have used with their students here) has exceeded 35,000 students to date, with the course taught in 700 centres around the UK. * In 2016, as a result of Jamie’s campaigning, a sugary drinks tax was announced in the UK. The money raised is being used to fund sports in schools. Sugary drinks levys are now being considered in many territories around the world.
We won’t be updating this page anymore so please follow our wonderful local Ambassadors past and present to see they great work they continue to do independent of the Ambassador Programme:
