Mana! Fast Slow Food 的發起人 Bobsy表示 :「廉價食品是一種罪行!一種對社會、人文、天然資源及地球不利的罪行。我們根本再付不起由廉價食品惹來的代價。」

《為食起革命》香港區義務工作大使陳嘉惠則指出 :「如果我們再不反醒自己的行為、再不採取行動,下一代將要面對除了健康以外更嚴重的代價。早於四年前聯合國糧食及農業組織已推算未來50年地球將比現時增加30億人口,要為100億人口提供糧食,我們需要比目前增加 70% 的糧食供應。但氣氛轉變卻勢必造成農作物失收,估計較窮困的發展中國家將要面對30% 作物產量的損失。我們必須反思自己的行為,向唯一及沒有替代品的地球負責。」

「我們都是獨一無二的。我們活在文化、經濟、時間和社會的種種約束之下。縱使我們一心想要健康,偏偏在日常生活上卻又時時做出錯誤的選擇。態度決定一切。要是一直被誤導,或只是採取淡然的態度,不如重新認識我們的社區,了解環境與日常,作出不同的嘗試 。」健康概念負責人Arlene Wu。

陳嘉惠 Beatrice Chan,《為食起革命》香港區義務工作大使

這是我第二年支持Jamie Oliver基金會的《為食起革命》運動。《為食起革命》在全球選出了多位義工代表去承諾推廣健康飲食及「真食物」(非加工食物),我很榮幸成為其中一份子。

2013年我希望把食物教育帶到社區及學校,繼續推廣本地及城市農耕的可持續性發展及發起一些珍惜食物、減少浪費的行動,當中包括支援食物銀行及減費活動,務求令香港甚至亞洲區的《為食起革命》更強大。

有關Jamie Oliver與《為食起革命》

Jamie Oliver是《為食起革命》的發起人及發動全球過百萬人士參加《為食起革命》的靈魂人物。約在2010年,Jamie Oliver於ABC 電視台推出了一個新節目,名為 “為食起革命”(Food Revolution),Jamie Oliver以電視節目形式去改善學校膳食並在美國西維吉尼亞州的Huntington組織起社區廚房,以行動去教育當地人從基本步驟開始去烹調。縱然最初面對很多困難,但最後反應仍是很熱烈,之後更在洛杉磯展開第二季的節目,並在當地追蹤學校膳食及當地人的飲食習慣。後來Jamie Oliver 成立了非營利的Jamie Oliver飲食基金會,並於美國各地繼續激勵當地人為真食物站起來! 時至今日,為食起革命已演變成一個全球運動,通過全球的義工網絡散播至全球各地的社區,以推廣飲食教育及從基本入手烹調新鮮食物,以對抗愈益嚴重的癡肥問題及飲食相關的各類疾病。

“Cheap food is a crime! A crime against Society, Humanity, our Natural Resources & our Planet. We simply can no longer afford cheap food.” Bobsy @ Mana!Fast Slow Food said.

“We need to take action and change our eating and living habit right now in order to save the planet! The world is expected to have additional three billion people by 2050 according to an estimation from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization. We have to gain 70% raise on food production within this 50 years to feed the future10 billion people. However, we are, especially in the developing countries, facing a drastic reduction on food production due to the climate change. We are responsible to this “the one and the only” earth. We must do something as an individual.” Beatrice Chan, Voluntary Ambassador, Food Revolution Hong Kong added.

“We are all unique. We live in our own cultural, economic, time and social constraints. Despite our best intentions we sometimes make the wrong daily decisions with our food and environment choices. This is okay. Awareness and attempts to better our nutrition with our environment are more important than being misinformed or just indifferent.” Arlene Wu, Health Concept
