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.

English celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, who relocated to Los Angeles with the hopes of bringing his Food Revolution into local schools, is getting a taste of rejection.
"It's not going so well at the moment," Oliver, 35, tells PEOPLE. "Currently, the L.A. School District won't let me near a single school, but we're going to try to get around that."
Oliver says he's hoping parents will stand up for the cause – the same cause that won him an Emmy for the first season of ABC's Food Revolution, when he overhauled lunch menus in Huntington, W. Va., schools. To that end, he opened Jamie's Kitchen in Westwood, Calif., earlier this week to provide a food-centric community center.
