Food Revolution Day Pittsburgh

Fortunately, I ran into a former colleague and her daughter and they were able to explain what was happening at the field at Obama Academy this afternoon when I was driving home from school. Food Revolution Day!   In conjunction with Jamie Oliver, the third annual Food Revolution Day was taking place all over the globe today.


I took home an organic purple pepper plant for my neighbor to plant in his garden.



Here is Jen’s daughter Wylie, feeding a kid at the petting zoo.

  3. I like the effort that is being made to educate people about good food. Jamie Oliver is to be applauded in his efforts in this.

  4. “purple pepper plant” – say that three times fast! 🙂
