Update from Danny - Jamie's Better Food Foundation

Hello everyone,

Well, it's my third week into the job and I am happy to report that I am loving every minute of it! It's my tenth year this year working for Jamie and I really do believe that I am where I should be and that is working for the Better Food Foundation (formerly the Jamie Oliver Foundation).

I know, I know - working part time is a treat as well but I can assure you that I am not far away on my day's off and I am as busy as ever as I am also focussing on the work that I do with San Patrignano.

Last week I had the privilege of visiting the Ministry of Food Centre in Leeds to check out the "Train the trainer" session that was being run. This was a chance for the trainers to connect with each other and share their stories and also to learn new cooking classes to be taught within the centre.

I loved being reminded of the great work that the Ministry of Food centres do to keep cooking skills alive. Each month I will be travelling to each centre to help them all with their social media engagement and content as well for Jamie's website.

Aside from this I am hugely honoured to be asked to be a "Super Ambassador"! We have a staff ambassador programme where various staff members volunteer to help the Foundation - in my new role I will be working hard to ensure that the ambassadors are getting as much out of volunteering as they do from what they give....

I miss chatting to you all - I'm not that far away and I am here every now and then! Although I have been here for 10 years I am still settling into the role but hey - the one constant in life is change! I

Watch out for more pics and updates from me and the Foundation in the future....

Hope everyone is well

Cheers from Danny

Good luck in Leeds, great pubs and curry houses, if I remember correctly. It was 20 years ago.
Great to hear from you and all is well.
