Due to open one of his Ministry of Food Centres in Queensland in March, Jamie Oliver postponed the plan and opened a kitchen to provide free food for the flood victims.

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has joined aid efforts in Australia by handing out free meals to flood victims in Queensland. The Brit was due to open one of his Ministry of Food Centres in Ipswich, Queensland in March to provide cookery lessons and nutrition advice to local residents.

But since the area was devastated by flood waters this month, Oliver has put his plans on hold and opened a kitchen to provide hot meals to those who have lost their homes in the disaster. The center will provide 250 free meals a day to those in need, as well as relief workers who are spear-heading the clean-up efforts.

Oliver says in a statement, "I've been as shocked as anyone by the scenes of devastation in Queensland and the tragic stories to go with them. 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."
