Walkabout kitchen project

 

Overview

The Walkabout kitchen project was developed by the Hunter New England (HNE) Local Health District with the New South Wales (NSW) Aboriginal Education Consultative Group (AECG) to promote the importance of healthy eating in the prevention of chronic disease.

The program aims to improve access to fresh fruit and vegetables, provide nutrition and physical activity education, as well as improve the health of local school aged children in order to improve attendance levels at school. 

The project is run out of a mobile kitchen trailer that travels to Indigenous communities to deliver healthy eating and healthy lifestyle programs. Taking the program to the communities aims to ensure that it is delivered in a culturally appropriate environment.
