Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has sent a message of support to Australian flood victims and is offering free cooking sessions to help residents feed their family over Easter. Jamie posted a video posted to social media saying he’d been moved by the scenes of recent devastation in Australia and his Queensland-based Jamie’s Ministry of Food group would provide its services to people with no safe space to prepare meals.
“Big love to everyone affected by the floods… There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world, and it’s not just in those places. There’s things going on everywhere. So I really feel for you at the moment.”
Have you been affected by the recent floods in QLD? Jamie’s Ministry of Food want to help, and are providing a safe place to come and prepare a hearty home cooked meal for flood-affected members of the Ipswich community and surrounds.
Their kitchen will be open every day, several times a day, to welcome people that have been affected by the recent floods. Each person who attends will cook enough food to feed four people (four meals). All food, equipment, facilities, takeaway containers, and cutlery will be provided. Thanks to our funding partners, we will also be giving away care packages to those that need assistance in restocking their kitchen.
