Food Revolution Day with Jamie Oliver

Food Revolution Day with Jamie Oliver

On Friday 16 May, Mars Food Australia supported 210 school students local to the Wyong plant to cook with celebrity chef Jamie Oliver on Food Revolution Day.

Food Revolution Day is part of Jamie’s drive to get kids all over the world excited about food.

Chittaway Bay Primary was interested to get involved but needed assistance to buy the groceries. Mars Food Australia happily covered this cost in order to share passion for food.

Approximately 210 students in grades 3-6 and the K-6 support classes for students with disabilities took part in making Rainbow Salad Wraps with Jamie who was streaming on the interactive white boards in the classrooms. The principal, Helen McDonald said that the children had a wonderful time. Most of the students enjoyed their lunch and some children surprised themselves by liking raw beetroot, mustard and other ingredients they had never tried before.

In addition to fresh food, Mars Food supplied MasterFoods English mustard (mild of course). It just goes to show that MasterFoods plays an important part in making healthy food taste good.
