This program, also known as Outback community foodies, involves delivery of the mainstream Community foodies program to Aboriginal people in remote parts of South Australia. All of the resources and activities that form part of the mainstream program have been adapted to be culturally appropriate for Aboriginal people and communities.
The program is run by Port Augusta Community Health in partnership with the Royal Flying Doctors Service, OPAL and various outback communities.
Since 2008, 60 trainees have participated in Aboriginal community foodies training. As at November 2011, there are 45 active Aboriginal Community Foodies in Oonadatta, Copley, Maree, Cooper Pedy, Nepabunna, Quorn, Hawker and Port Augusta.
