Here in Australia, Jamie’s Ministry of Food cooking centres are celebrating Food Revolution Day with their own unique activities on the day.
In Australia, we have two mobile kitchens that travel to regional and remote locations, allowing us to take our cooking classes to those who need it most. Our mobile kitchens are currently located in Joondalup, regional West Australia, and Townsville, Queensland, the furthest north Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia has been. On Friday, the mobile kitchens will be holding cooking classes all day to share cooking skills in these regional communities.
In New South Wales and South Australia, we’re delivering food education where many people buy their food in front of Woolworths supermarkets. In Sydney, the Wetherill Park team will be giving demonstrations in Stockland shopping centres, while Jamie’s Ministry of Food Pop-Up in Noarlunga, South Australia, is running demonstrations for the Colonnades Shopping centres.
Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia works to reduce the burden of diet related disease for the most vulnerable in our communities including people on low or no incomes, people with a disability, people who live in regional or remote Australia and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. To ensure we reach more of these groups this Food Revolution, two of our permanent centres will be giving free cooking demonstrations.
In our Geelong and Ipswich centres we’ll be hosting cooking demonstrations of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution recipes with community groups we haven’t yet worked with. These demonstrations will give the groups a taste for the philosophy behind Jamie’s Ministry of Food showing them how easy it is to cook good, nutritious food for ourselves and our friends and family.
All Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia teams will also show their support on social media by posting fridge ‘’shelfies’’, sharing the contents of their fridges with added nutrition messages or interesting facts. They will also post selfies in support of Food Revolution Day on May 20.
