Healthy eating for all

We aim to support people to eat well by:

  • Supporting people to have the knowledge, skills and resources to eat a healthy diet
  • Bringing the community together to support other to eat well
  • Making it easier to access healthy food

In 2015- 2016 we will develop new, and continue working, on the following projects:

  • FoodMate: a project aimed at increasing access to affordable healthy food and improving cooking skills
  • Queen Victoria Market Bus Trips: weekly bus trips to the Queen Vic Market to improve access to healthy and affordable food
  • Port Melbourne No To Sugary Drinks Campaign: work with the community to develop a local campaign to reduce consumption of sugary drinks
  • Food Growing: work in partnership with council, community and other stakeholders to establish new food growing spaces in Port Melbourne.
  • Healthy Eating at Port Melbourne Primary School: promote healthy eating at the local primary school through a newly established working group and focusing on implementing a traffic-light system for canteen products
  • Healthy food policy: support local organisations to adopt and implement healthy food policies
  • Healthy Eating on a Budget Toolkit: raise awareness of how to eat healthy without breaking the bank by promoting and distributing this toolkit
