I love Jamie Oliver. He's like the Bono of food. In March, his first American television show will debut on ABC. Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution will chronicle his work with the people of Huntington, W.Va. The city was recently named the "unhealthiest city in America." Oliver, who has already transformed school lunches in England, is now tackling the school lunches and more in Huntington.
In addition to the TV show, Oliver has a petition on his website that he is asking Americans to sign. After the debut of Food Revolution, he will present the petition to the president and Mrs. Obama to show them "how many people really care about this and ask for their support." Since the first lady has announced her intention to lead a fight against childhood obesity (more on that tomorrow), this is one online petition that might actually get the attention of the White House.
Take a look at the newly released trailer for Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, and tune into ABC on March 26 for the show.
