Remote Indigenous Stores and Takeaways Project



The Remote Indigenous Stores and Takeaways (RIST) Project was established in 2005 by the SA, WA, NT, Qld, NSW and Australian Government Health Departments to improve access to a healthy food supply for Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people in remote communities.

The project builds on other initiatives to establish and improve standards for 'healthy' remote stores. To reach the goals of the project, the following resources were developed:

The project was supported by the National Public Health Partnership as a part of the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander nutrition strategy and action plan 2000-2010 (NATSINSAP), and a number of jurisdictions jointly funded and contributed to the project.
