Yesterday (26th June 2013) Rotherham Borough Council confirmed that the town’s Ministry of Food Centre has had to temporarily close to allow for a review of the All Saints' Square premises.
A council spokesperson said: "As the welfare of the staff and the public is our main priority, the shop has been closed to enable a full survey of the premises to be carried out. This is to ensure that the building continues to be suitable to run the Jamie’s Ministry of Food cooking programme”
"The seven staff and the trade unions have obviously been consulted."
Rotherham Borough Council are working with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation so that the Centre can reopen at the earliest opportunity.
