Yirrkala active cooking

 

Overview

The Yirrkala active cooking program supported the Yolngu young people of the Yirrkala community in East Arnhem Land to create healthier diets, by providing beach cooking and physical activity sessions.

The goal of the program was to provide regular opportunities for Yolngu young people to learn about food preparation and to have a fun experience cooking and being physically active. The program was ran by Yirrkala Sport and Recreation in partnership with the Department of Health and Community Services. The program ran weekly, after school and during school holidays.
