The Gordon welcomes Jamie’s Ministry of Food

We recently launched our new partnership with Jamie’s Ministry of Food (JMoF). The new partnership will involve 18 cookery and hospitality apprentices and trainees from The Gordon.
This partnership will see the good work JMoF does in promoting healthy eating continue across the Geelong region. JMoF, which is delivered by The Good Foundation in Australia, has already taught almost 10,000 Geelong locals cooking skills.

JMoF is based at The Gordon’s Geelong Technical Education Centre (GTEC) at our East Geelong Campus, with students given the opportunity to attend and be part of the program.


JMoF uses Jamie Oliver's recipes and his philosophy on cooking, buying, storing and eating good, fresh and healthy food. Participants from the community will learn delicious recipes, essential cooking skills and techniques and nutrition tips in their 90-minute weekly classes. 
Lisa Line, Gordon CEO, said “This is such an important initiative to continue in our community. Having had thousands of participants undertake the training, many individuals and families have benefited with a new appreciation for healthier food choices, along with some of those brilliant Jamie Oliver tips on how to make delicious food easily. Now based at The Gordon, our apprentices and trainees are really excited to be a part of Jamie Oliver’s Ministry of Food Project.”
In support of the program, the Victorian Government will provide $1.7 million from its Workforce Training Innovation Fund to help fund the program and enable participants from the Geelong region to engage with the program, as well as supporting access to educational opportunities that improve the well-being of the community.
