Aboriginal training organisation Tauondi College, with project partners the Aboriginal Health Council of South Australia (SA) and SA Health, set up a Live Longer! Mobile Training Van project which aimed to help prevent chronic disease in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across SA by providing free two-day training courses in healthy eating, nutrition and horticulture.
The caravan visited 21 Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities.
Training graduates were encouraged to link in with their local Aboriginal community controlled health service to receive ongoing health checks, healthy lifestyle advice and support. They also worked together to create a cookbook that contained traditional and contemporary recipes that are healthy, practical to make and use locally available ingredients.
