Since graduating from Northumbria University in 2009 Joanna is working at East End Health, a Community Interest Company in Byker. Joanna has a passion and determination to teach people across the whole city of Newcastle about food, nutrition and cooking to ensure they can choose a healthy lifestyle. She is currently delivering Jamie's Ministry of Food cookery courses, as well as teaching primary school children about where their food comes from, how it is grown and how it can be cooked. Joanna is a great role model for the children and the community's she works with and hopes the work she does will get people interested and excited about healthy, local food. Joanna also completed the Great North Run in 2010 in order to raise money for East End Health and plans to continue fundraising for local charities in the future.
