Kooris in the kitchen

 

Overview

Kooris in the kitchen was a practical cooking and nutrition program for women, held at the Melbourne Aboriginal Youth Sport and Recreation Cooperative (MAYSAR) gym. The program was run in partnership with the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service, while the gym is funded by the Australian Government Indigenous Sport and Recreation Program.

The groups have successfully helped participants to feel more confident in the kitchen, cook meals for their families, feel more connected to their community and pursue jobs in the cooking and hospitality industry.
