UPDATE: Interested parents can get involved with the Los Angeles Food Revolution TODAY (Jan. 13) at Jamie’s Kitchen in Westwood Village, CA. Details below!

Jamie Oliver, celebrity chef, best-selling author and food activist, has come to Los Angeles, to further expand his food revolution that he found much success with in his homeland of England.

Last year, Jamie hosted the Emmy-winning ABC docu-reality series, “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution,” where he set up shop in Huntington, West Virginia, one of the unhealthiest areas in America. His goal was to help the people switch from fast and processed foods to fresh, both in the schools and at home. In additional to working directly in the schools, he opened the Huntington Kitchen to teach the community to cook. The Huntington Kitchen remains open today and has been the centerpiece of a revitalized downtown center.

With the success of Huntington behind him, Jamie’s ready for a bigger challenge—to help the kids and families of the country’s second largest city make the switch to fresh food. And the first step is to teach them to cook. Jamie’s Kitchen in Westwood Village will become his home base for “Food Revolution” in Los Angeles.

Jamie’s Kitchen will provide a place for the community to come and learn to cook fresh food quickly and inexpensively. Jamie’s Kitchen will provide educational resources and information to help families and individuals combat the obesity epidemic by recapturing their kitchens.

The second season of “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” will air on ABC later this season.
