Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food van at Joondalup Campus.
ECU's Joondalup Campus is the first location to launch the Jamie's Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen in WA. The community-based, seven-week cooking program teaches Jamie's basic home cooking skills to students, families and community groups.
In the three-year partnership, ECU will host the Mobile Kitchen at several locations including Joondalup, Bunbury and Mount Lawley Campuses, providing work integrated learning opportunities that support students' employability.
Our researchers will also evaluate the program, conduct additional research activities and determine how social media helps translate new knowledge about healthy eating into the everyday lives and homes of participants.
Next 7-week program: Joondalup Campus from Wednesday 5 September 2018.
