Following huge success during its recent time on the Queensland University of Technology campus, Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will make its next stop at the University of the Sunshine Coast (USC).  The Mobile Kitchen will be located at USC from September.
Classes begin on Thursday 25th September 2014 concluding in November. While on the Sunshine Coast, Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will deliver two five-week cooking courses to students, staff and the local community running from Monday through to Saturday each week.
The Mobile Kitchen program offers a five-week cooking course, comprising one 90-minute cooking class per week with up to 12 participants in each class.  Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will deliver hands-on basic cooking classes led by a team of dedicated Food Trainers.
Delivered by Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia and partnering with the Sunshine Coast Council and the USC, local residents will have the opportunity to access and participate in an innovative, community based cooking program built on Jamie’s beliefs about cooking and the associated impact on healthy living.
USC’s Vice-Chancellor Professor Greg Hill said the University was delighted to be hosting the Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen for the next three months.
“This high-profile project will bring many benefits to Sunshine Coast residents and provide invaluable learning experiences for our Nutrition students who will work as volunteers to assist with the facilitation of the cooking classes,” he said.
CEO Jamie’s Ministry of Food Australia, Alicia Peardon believed the USC campus was a great location for the program due to the existing learning environment which will encourage participants to learn and pass on Jamie’s important messages about learning to cook with fresh ingredients.
“The Jamie’s Ministry of Food team is excited to be delivering the program across Queensland for another 12 months with the support of the Queensland Government, and looks forward to a successful visit in the Mobile Kitchen’s new location on the Sunshine Coast.” Ms Peardon said.
