Jamie Oliver, savior of fat families and scourge of school districts, is bringing his food revolution to the OC city that needs it the most: big, bad, brown Santa Ana.
Gawd, the stats on SanTana--I do believe it's one of the fattest cities in the United States, with one of the worst parkland-per-person ratios in this country, a place that couldn't support a farmers' market--and now Jamie's coming to save the wabs!
The revelation is in a Los Angeles Times story highlighting Oliver's Food Revolution truck--not some mini luxe lonchera, but a big rig, the kind my daddy hauls across Southern California, except tricked out as a cooking school and amusement park.

There's no date yet for the Food Revolution's invasion of Santa Ana or where, although I wouldn't be surprised if Oliver teams up with the fine nonprofit Latino Health Access, which has been tackling for a good decade the very problems Oliver decries. Details to come. . . .
In the meanwhile, Jamie? Make sure to talk to all those Mexi families with healthy-ass nopales growing in their back yards that you ain't going to get at farmers' markets. . . .
