Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community foodies

 

Overview

This program, also known as Outback community foodies, involves delivery of the mainstream Community foodies program to Indigenous people in remote parts of South Australia.

The Community foodies program is a nutrition program that aims to build the capacity of communities to make healthier food choices by training and supporting volunteer community members (foodies) to act as agents for change.

All of the resources and activities that form part of the mainstream program have been adapted to be culturally appropriate for Indigenous people and their communities.

Key messages of the program include:

The program is run by UnitingCare Wesley Bowden in partnership with UnitingCare Wesley Country SA.
