Jamie is a London-based chef who is clearly passionate about teaching kids of all ages how to cook and eat healthy food. Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution is a series about how families eat, school food, obesity and health issues.

This TV series is based in Huntington, West Virginia, a small city about 6-7 hours west of our Nation’s Capital.
