Jamie Oliver Providing Meals To Flood Victims

Earlier this week we had a bit of a shock when we learned that Jamie Oliver had served endangered European eel at one of his restaurants, especially since the celebrity chef has been on such a role with doing good deeds.

He’s been trying to curb childhood obesity with his Emmy-award winning show Food Revolution, and also helped to pass the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act last year. So, in other words, we expected more from him.

But the 35-year-old seems to be back on track, and this week has joined aid efforts in Australia to help the victims of a flood in Queensland, where many residents have lost their homes.

Oliver has opened up a kitchen to provide 250 hot meals a day to those in need and the relief workers who are running clean-up efforts.


In a statement, the chef said, “I’ve been as shocked as anyone by the scenes of devastation in Queensland and the tragic stories to go with them.”

He continue, “It’s only right that the Ministry of Food Centre in Ipswich plays its part in helping the community, so I hope that providing free freshly cooked meals for those who need them most will go some way to helping the local community and relief workers in the coming days and weeks. The people of Queensland are always in my thoughts at the moment.”

We think it’s great that Oliver is giving back to this community that has essentially lost everything, keep up the good work!
