jamie oliver’s food revolution

“Whenever there is enthusiasm, there is a creative empowerment that goes far beyond what a mere person is capable of.”

Eckhart Tolle

The simple act of making and enjoying beautiful, simple food is essential not only to our health and well being — it keeps us connected — it’s our modern day equivalent of cavemen gathering round a fire.  Food Revolution Day is a global day of action for people everywhere to celebrate real food, where it comes from and how to cook it.  It’s a day to come together to keep these cooking skills alive, improve our food knowledge and share it with others.

Lola has great energy and creativity as well as a logical approach to working with brands. I would recommend her services to anyone who is looking to expand their brand and product offerings.  Lola is so creative, she sees a lot of connections that are easy to miss when you’re too close to your business.

As London Ambassador for Food Revolution Day, Lola took our brief fast and then turned it into actions even faster.  Dynamic, creative, innovative and passionate, and great fun to have on the team, Lola is absolutely at home with new world PR and social media and able to leverage the best way to connect a cause with it’s champions.

2012 was the launch year for Food Revolution, with the focus of building a strong supporter base in each community around the world, so that the movement can continue to grow in a tangible and sustainable way.

I head up all London Food Revolution activities, working with the JO global team to connect individuals, schools, businesses and organisations to become a fantastic, inspiring crew of volunteers in creating and broadcasting the superb FRD events in the greater London area. 

Specifically:

  • Directing My Family Club, The Assembly and London Farmers Market vendors in getting their events endorsed and broadcasted.

  • Heading up all Twitter broadcasts to source and respond to the feed in the lead-up and during the event roll-out.

  • Acting as first local spark for Food Revolution Day by putting London on the map with local events, uniting them to start a movement.

  • Inspiring restaurants, gardeners, farmers markets, schools and local businesses to get involved.

  • Acting as point of contact for local press and promotions.

  • Acting as communications hub for people who organised local events.

  • Liaising with the global team for all events.
