Jamie Oliver Healthy Cup Award

Television personality, food activist, and internationally acclaimed chef Jamie Oliver received Harvard School of Public Health’s (HSPH) Healthy Cup Award at a packed ceremony at the Joseph B. Martin Conference Center in Boston. More than 500 people came to see Oliver, star of TV series such as Naked Chef and Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution, receive the award. Oliver was honored for his transformative work on school lunch programs in the United States and the United Kingdom and for the dramatic influence his advocacy has had on public opinion around childhood obesity. His message—that community-wide as well as individual changes are needed to solve the obesity epidemic—reached millions when ABC’s Food Revolution, a reality TV program, documented his efforts to overhaul school meals in Huntington, West Virginia, and the Los Angeles Unified School District.
