Monthly cook-off supporting young Indigenous children

Date posted: 12 May 2014

The Ganyjuu Family Support Centre, a Brisbane-based Indigenous family support agency funded by the Queensland government, is teaching household skills and good nutrition to Indigenous families via a monthly 'cook-off.'

Last week, grandmothers from Logan gathered at the centre for the cook-off, which plays an important role in supporting young Indigenous children. Torres Strait Islander Diana Namok has lived in Logan for 30 years and says the workshops also act as social events for the grandmothers involved. 'Cooking and meeting all other grannies...that's the main thing about it,' she said.

The future of the centre is in doubt however, with the funding finishing next year.
