New Canaan Food Revolution
May 15, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm$5.00
The Jamie Oliver Food Revolution returns to the Pop Up Park in New Canaan, Connecticut for its 3rd year on Saturday, May 14th between 10am – 12.30pm. The event centers around a “Bravery Passport” – designed to encourage children of all ages to walk a food trail of local eateries and sample small bites – breaking down barriers about food they ‘think’ they may not like or even want to try.
This year, the event will be hosted by Food Network star and local celebrity, Chef Plum – who will be joined with Teen Chopped champion Hunter Zampa. There will be live entertainment with Dre Towey, who recently released her children’s album In a Pickle. The 15-catchy and fun songs all reference food, to encourage a healthy and fun conversation between parents and their children. Local band Mind The Gap will be rocking out and the New England Academy of Dance will be performing the latest from Cinderella.
Tickets are $5 per child (plus booking fee). In addition to their ‘Bravery Passport’, participating children receive a bravery certificate and kitchen utensil at the end of the trail. A portion of funds from ticket sales will be donated to CT Food Bank and participants are being asked to drop off non perishable foods.
