Taking Jamie Oliver's 'Food Revolution' to the streets


Here's a sneak peek at what's coming in this week's Food section:

In a downtown parking lot sits one of the most impressive things that Jamie Oliver, the chef-activist-TV personality, has brought to Los Angeles for his "Food Revolution" television show: a red-and-khaki-striped big rig tricked out as a traveling cooking school.

Even in food-truck-mad L.A., this behemoth, 70 feet long, stands out.

Demonstrations have been held on board for officials, potential donors and others. But last week, the first classes began for young people. After the truck starts traveling, the plan is to offer classes to children, adults and families in South Los Angeles, Boyle Heights, Long Beach and Santa Ana. Classes will focus on simple, healthful, everyday cooking.

C'mon USA - support Jamie and his efforts! Send messages to ABC and demand Jamie's show not be moved because of Dancing with the Stars!
