Jamie Oliver Pop Up Kitchen petition update

We've had an overwhelmingly positive response from FIG members - and the broader community - in support of bringing a Jamie Oliver Pop Up Kitchen to the Central Coast.

Many identified the need for increased awareness and education around healthy eating, accessing clean safe food and supporting local farmers. This is what Food Integrity Group is all about.

We are disappointed to say that council was unable to support our preferred Pop-Up-Kitchen site in time for the closing date of submissions and as a result, we were unable to proceed with our application.

This does NOT mean the potential to expand FIG and develop a community hub is lost. In fact, the show of support and passion for this project from FIG members and friends, local residents and businesses alike has highlighted the communities inherent desire and need for this kind of development.

This experience has fuelled our drive to succeed!  The valued support of members and community is integral in helping us secure a permanent site for a hub development and we will provide updates on the next step in bringing this FIG vision to life!

Thank you again for the enthusiasm and support.
