A FITNESS instructor has been signed up by Jamie Oliver to take part in his food revolution.
Sam Markey, 43, owner of Shape Back Boot Camp in Selsdon, has joined forces with the celebrity chef to help to fight the obesity epidemic in the UK and to highlight the world's food issues on Food Revolution Day, which has been launched by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation.
Mrs Markey said: "Food Revolution Day had an incredible start in 2012 with fantastic events all over the world.
"In 2013, I will be doing everything possible to make it an even bigger success and I'd like to ask anyone from the community who cares about our food and our future to contact me to find out how they can get involved."
The Food Revolution is to take place all around the globe to help people share information to highlight the obesity crisis.
Sam hopes schools, businesses and restaurants in Croydon will get involved.
She said: "We want to inspire change in people's food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone."
Jamie Oliver said: "Ambassadors like Sam are doing an incredible job and I can't wait to hear about what everyone's doing on May 17.
"This is all about people power. If enough of us stand up and say that we care about where our food comes from and that we demand better food education for our children, then the governments of the world will start to listen."
