Swan Hill food for all

 

Overview

The Swan Hill Food for all project was part of the VicHealth Food for all (FFA) project. FFA was designed to improve access to, and consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables for people living in disadvantaged communities, through the identification of local government systemic and infrastructure barriers to food security.

The Swan Hill Rural City Council (SHRCC) developed a variety of activities in collaboration with businesses, organisations, agencies, institutions and community groups and representatives. The project aims included:

It was hoped that group efforts would succeed in making these activities sustainable. This would in turn improve the access to fresh fruit and vegetables leading to healthier food consumption, which will enhance the health and well-being of the communities. The partnership approach was developed to not only assist with sustainability, but also to increase opportunities for community participation in advocating for improved access to a variety of healthy foods. The project was funded by VicHealth.
