The Kool purple kookas project was a cooking program delivered by Kool Purple Kookas, a not-for-profit organisation in Sydney, New South Wales.
The project aimed to teach Indigenous children about healthy eating habits and the relationship between a good diet and chronic disease prevention via one-day cooking lessons. The program also encouraged further participation via a web-based cooking competition that encouraged the children to cook healthy meals for their families inspired by local bush tucker.
A community cookbook was developed as a result of the program.
The program was conducted in the NSW communities of Ballina, Coonabarabran, Foster, Moree, Narrandera, Redfern, Singleton, Tingha, Wee Waa, and Wyong.
