When it comes to eating, Friday doesn't have to be just an ordinary day. British chef Jamie Oliver wants you to think about what you eat by celebrating his second annual Food Revolution Day.
"For me, this is the one day for us all to get together and shout about the importance of food education and the need to share and pass on food knowledge and cooking skills," says Oliver, who's designated May 17th as Food Revolution Day.
"This is an opportunity to build better relationships with great food, whether that's hosting a big event like a farmers' market or a small dinner for your mates and cooking everything from scratch," the British chef, who promotes healthy eating through his TV shows and best-selling cookbooks, tells PEOPLE.

Though each was young and vulnerable, all three of Ariel Castro's alleged kidnap victims came armed with strengths that would help them endure the years of horror ahead.
Gina DeJesus, 14, had the buoyancy and affection of a well-loved child who knew that home and family were worth fighting for. Strong-willed Amanda Berry, 16, was, to her family, “the glue that kept everyone calm," says childhood friend Lisha Jacome, who lived briefly in the Berry home.
A frequent babysitter for her sister's two daughters, Berry had child-care skills when she bore Castro's child in 2007. For that birth Castro designated his oldest captive, Michelle Knight, as midwife – and threatened to kill her if the baby died. The mother of a 2-year-old son when she was kidnapped at age 21, Knight not only had experienced childbirth, she had helped perform a delivery of the family dog's puppies as a kid.

There were plenty of divas on the stage at the American Idol finale Thursday night. But two of them had the distinction of being – at one time or another – judges on the show. (They're also both moms to twins!)
Mariah Carey and Jennifer Lopez took the stage during the two-hour musical extravaganza, which crowned Candice Glover the winner of season 12.
Mariah, dressed in a glittering, feathered gown and gobs of jewels, performed a medley of her hits, including "Vision of Love," "Make It Happen," "My All," "Hero" and "We Belong Together," as well as her new song, "#Beautiful." It was a fluttering – and, yes, pre-recorded – performance of vocal acrobatics from the singer and current judge.

It seems like only yesterday baby daughter Vivian was just a bump on the beauteous bod of her mother, Gisele Bündchen – because it was.
But now the 32-year-old model mother and her 5-month-old daughter, in what appeared to be long-sleeved matching white tops (Duchess of Cambridge, are you watching?), are out and about in New York, just as the city is finally warming up to spring. Mom is cradling Vivian, who looks to be serenely enjoying the pacifier in her mouth.
As for the boys in the family, Gisele's handsome New England Patriot husband Tom Brady and their 3-year-old son Benjamin, they weren't in this picture.

The series finale of The Office took up an hour and 15 minutes of NBC's prime-time schedule Thursday night. The last quarter-hour had a special sentimental magic, as we got parting moments with each of the characters at the Dunder Mifflin paper company of Scranton, Pa.
The rest you could have fed into a shredder.
After a season that carefully worked out significant narrative strands – the ultimately inevitable ascension to manager of the insufferable Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson), the unexpectedly tender travails in the marriage of Jim and Pam (John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) – this episode was poorly conceived and clumsily structured.
It really wasn't worthy of all the years of affectionate humor that had gone before it.
