British chef Jamie Oliver has been out there saving the world from threats like pink slime and flavored milk — sometimes while dressing up as a vegetable — for some time now, and Harvard has decided it's time for a reward. The Harvard School of Public Health has announced that it is awarding Oliver its Healthy Cup Award "for his substantial achievements in working to end the childhood obesity epidemic" through efforts like promoting healthy school lunches in schools here in the US as well as in the UK.
Eater Boston notes that previous recipients of this award include former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca and "father of aerobics" Kenneth Cooper. Oliver will be in Boston on May 22 to receive the award.
