WITH the local Jamie’s Ministry of Food Mobile Kitchen in full swing, local retailer The Good Guys Hoppers Crossing is calling on local students to get involved.
Jamie’s Food Revolution Day will be held on 16 May and students have the chance to win an appliance refresh pack for their school canteen.
With the focus of this year’s Food Revolution Day being to ‘get kids excited about food’, the local retailer believes that the logical step is to help provide schools with the additional opportunity to have new, workable, kid-friendly appliances available in their school canteen that encourage the preparation of common lunches from scratch.
“The pack contains everything a student needs to make a delicious, healthy and nutritious lunch using commonly available ingredients,” said Proprietor of The Good Guys Hoppers Crossing, Fab DeCesaris.
“We have put together three items that will help students create fun and colourful fruit and vegetable drinks, nutrition-packed, Jamie Oliver-inspired smoothies and the old favourite sanga press because let’s face it, everything tastes better toasted.”
The pack, which contains a brand new blender, juicer and sandwich press from The Good Guys Hoppers Crossing, will be awarded to one school in the local area on Food Revolution Day, following entries in store demonstrating how their school is celebrating Jamie’s global initiative.
“In the lead-up to this terrific event, we are calling on parents, students, teachers and friends to tell us how their school is getting behind Jamie’s Food Revolution Day,” Fab said.
“Whether that be a good food fund-raising lunch, a junk food-free day or a healthy student breakfast, we hope that this will encourage lasting change for the better in our local community.”
To enter, visit The Good Guys Hoppers Crossing at 161 Old Geelong Road and fill out the entry form in store. The winner will be announced in store on Food Revolution Day, 16 May.
