Feeding Funds to Riverina's 'Food I Am'


Local Riverina cooking school and dining venue, 'Food I Am' has received a NSW State Government grant of $40,500 to support a $81,000 project to construct an all-weather enclosed deck.


Member for Wagga Wagga Daryl Maguire this week announced the funding alongside Deputy Prime Minister and Federal Member for Riverina, Michael McCormack.

“Food I Am is a unique Riverina destination, part restaurant, part cooking school, where guests can roll up their sleeves and learn from the best chefs in the country.

"I’m delighted to announce funding to support this project which will see enclosure of the cooking school building deck area to increase capacity to cope with growing demand.

“This funding is in addition to $62,294 of funding provided in last year’s round of the TDDI program which supported renovations to increase the venue’s all-weather capacity for larger events, and to create a new outdoor space,” Mr Maguire said.

Courtney shared the story on this morning's Brekkie Flow.


Member for Riverina Michael McCormack said the Federal Government’s investment in the Food I am expansion would support Wagga’s growing interest in food and cooking

“I have been to many events, including the Fusion multicultural street festival, where thousands of people have been attracted by the food on offer,” Mr McCormack said.

“Many of those people are from outside Wagga, so I’m keen to support the Food I am expansion."
