My favourite celebrity chef, Jamie Oliver, was recently awarded the TED Prize for his work in educating people about the food they eat. This year, he is taking his popular Ministry of Food and School Dinners concept to the United States in Jamie’s Food Revolution. In his acceptance speech, he talks about this project and why it is so important in America.
“The TED Prize is awarded annually to an exceptional individual who receives $100,000 and, much more important, ‘One Wish to Change the World.’ ”
Jamie’s wish – “I wish for your help to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.”
The following video is Jamie’s acceptance speech. It is definitely worth 22 minutes of you day, even if you only listen in the background.
If you’ve not yet heard of TED, “a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading” I urge you to check them out.
