Feedin' the mob

 

Overview

Feedin' the mob is a nutrition, physical activity and healthy lifestyle project for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the City of Whittlesea, Victoria.

Based at Plenty Valley Community Health, Feedin' the mob is funded by the Federal Government and supported by Council through its Healthy communities initiative.

Feedin' the mob gets the community involved in activities that draw on local culture to teach the benefits of healthy eating and lifestyle. The target audience are teenagers, parents and carers, people living with chronic illness and Elders. The project includes a community garden, cooking classes and information-sharing about primary health care and chronic disease prevention.
