Today is Food Revolution Day
IPSWICH residents are being encouraged to get back in the kitchen today as part of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day.
Health Minister Lawrence Springborg has put out the call for people across the state to get behind the campaign, designed to get people cooking and eating well.
He said thousands of Queenslanders had already benefited from the government-supported Jamie's Ministry of Food - The Good Foundation initiative, and he urged others to heed its message of healthy cooking and eating.
The Ministry of Food program teaches participants how to cook meals from scratch using fresh ingredients, helping people to enhance their cooking skills and food literacy.
"The rationale behind the Ministry of Food program is a simple one, preparing healthy food together and eating together," Mr Springborg said.
"Food Revolution Day promotes these qualities - fresh food and good cooking, and it celebrates the richness that healthy home cooking can bring."
