I am excited to inform you of a tremendous opportunity for the City of Onkaparinga and our communities.
We have been invited to pursue a Jamie Oliver Pop up Kitchen within our city for the next 12 months at no cost to our Council.
Time is of the essence and we are looking for quick and widespread support across our region from as many people and organisations as possible.
This week we’ve partnered with Colonnades Shopping Centre to enter a national competition to bring Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food to our communities. Jamie is one of the world’s most recognised and well respected celebrities, with a passion for education on the benefits of cooking healthy nutritious food at home simply and easily. His mission is to make great healthy food accessible to the world.
If we are selected as the winning region, Australia’s first Ministry of Food Pop-up Kitchen will be based in our city at Noarlunga. This could deliver major benefits to our entire region and would make a positive impact on the health of our residents through education and behavioral change.
We know that many people in the City of Onkaparinga and within the Colonnades trade area are in need of education on food, healthy cooking and general well being.
Statistics tell us that nearly 40 per cent of residents are overweight, with 23 per cent classified as obese – that’s nearly 1 in 5 people. Residents in our region are also 1.8 times more likely to eat fast food compared to the SA average.
If successful in our bid, Colonnades Shopping Centre will take a vacant shop space and provide the resources to turn it into a first class facility that will house the Ministry of Food Pop-up Kitchen. It would also be a great asset to our whole region, providing an easily accessible facility that can be used by schools, community and business groups.
