Online Launch Of Program For Queensland Kids
Queensland kids can learn to cook Jamie Oliver style, with the launch of an all new school holiday program, delivered online!
With face-to-face classes ceasing, Jamie’s Ministry of Food has announced the launch of a school holiday program, offering online cooking classes for young Queenslanders from the comfort of their own kitchens.
With over 19,000 Queenslanders having participated in Jamie’s Ministry of Food’s program, online virtual communities have popped up all over the state – from Yarrabilba to Mackay, and Toowoomba to Isaac to name a few.
The program is taught by professional food trainers via a live interactive video chat. With funding contribution from the Queensland Government and with the support of Health and Wellbeing Queensland, Jamie’s Ministry of Food is committed to improving the nutritional education and cooking skills for locals and priority groups.
“Our school holiday program will teach our young students the basics of food, nutrition and cooking, as well as some of Jamie’s special tips and tricks! Participants will learn how to make meals from scratch, by baking, grilling, sautéing, boiling and roasting fresh ingredients,” said Siobhan Boyle, CEO of The Good Foundation and regular instructor at YSSC.
“The program equips teens with skills that make it simpler and quicker to cook healthy, delicious meals – a skill that will take them well into adulthood. Maintaining a healthy diet is always important and particularly during these difficult times,” Siobhan said.
