Nunga lunch

 

Overview

The Nunga lunch program was established by the Noarlunga Aboriginal Primary Health Care Unit as a means of providing healthy lunches to community members once per week.

Funded by Country South SA Medicare Local, Murray Mallee General Practice Network and the Noarlunga Aboriginal Primary Health Care Unit, the lunch allows an opportunity for engagement within the primary health sector. The program additionally gives the health care sector a means of reaching groups of people who may be difficult to reach using mainstream methods. The weekly lunches aid in looking after the social, emotional and physical wellbeing of these community members whilst also providing an opportunity to network and connect with the Indigenous community.

Since the commencement of the program, an average of 50 community members per week have attended the lunch, and the program's success was highlighted at the recent SA Health Awards 2013, as a finalist in the Consumer, Carer and Community Participation Category.
