Sarah, a Home Schooling Mum, was keen to further her children’s cooking skills and meet other students in the local home schooler’s network. The group enjoyed the Jamie’s Ministry of Food program so much that Sarah booked the Monday 1pm class continuously for 6 months.
Diabetes NSW and Jamie’s Ministry of Food Wetherill Park joined forces to teach both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics and their families how to make good nutritious food for them. Wonderful social connections also formed with other local diabetics helping to build a healthier, happier community
In 2015 the Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen QLD headed to the Indigenous community of Cherbourg for a few weeks. This pilot program was extremely well received by the community, and is a great example of what a difference our program can make in areas where rates of obesity and Type 2 diabetes are much higher than for the average Australian.
