We are excited to announce that Jamie’s Ministry of Food is coming to Rockhampton! You will learn Jamie’s hints, tips and shortcuts to cooking delicious, nutritious and affordable meals from scratch.

Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen will be located at Stockland Rockhampton, 331 Yaamba Road, North Rockhampton. There will be two 5 week cycles run of the program, with Cycle 1 (5 week course) commencing on Friday 6th February and running until Thursday 12th March 2015. Cycle 2 will commence on Friday 13th March and run until Monday 20th April 2015 (including a break for Easter).

A Ministry of Food Centre is a place where everyone aged 12 and over can learn basic cookery skills in a friendly, supportive and fun environment. Participants learn through practical hands-on cooking classes that demonstrate how easy and cheap it can be to make simple and nutritious meals from scratch. Classes will run 6 days a week Click Here for a full timetable of available classes.

The cost of the program is $10 per class (total $50) or $5 per class (total $25) for concession card holders. The course fee includes all ingredients and participants leave each week with a meal for two that they have prepared themselves.

The Mobile Kitchen is also looking for volunteers to support the program while it is in Rockhampton. If this would be of interest to you or anyone you know please Click Here and have a look at the volunteer information pack. Volunteers are asked to commit 2 hours per week for five weeks and in return they are matched to a class for delivery of the program. And of course all our volunteers are well fed!
