Eat well outback South Australia project
The Centre for Health Promotion, Youth and Women's Health Service, in South Australia was a partner in the Eat well outback SA project, which ran from 2001-2004, funded by the National child nutrition program. This project aimed to improve the affordability, quality and variety of food in outback SA.
The project had five objectives:
- increase community awareness and involvement in improving access to healthy food
- advocate for the development of policies that address community identified issues concerning the lack of consumption of a healthy diet
- collaborate with stakeholders to facilitate improvement of country freight logistics
- facilitate the delivery of training to retailers in the region and the adoption of effective stores policies through the development and provision of a good services guide manual
- facilitate the delivery of education programs to increase the consumption of a healthy diet.
