Fresh food for our kids
for a stronger, healthier, more sustainable us.
We’re currently raising $245,000 to expand the Healthy Lunch Kitchen to more children and schools; build the Young Growers Program; develop and deliver a Family Cooking School; and undertake an Economic Feasibility Study to build the SHIFT facility in the coming years.
Now more than ever we need to work on implementing solutions that build strong, healthy, and sustainable communities.
Our first SHIFT project – the Healthy Lunch Kitchen - has started.
In just its first weeks, the Healthy Lunch Kitchen sold 150 nutritious affordable meals each week at our first partner school, Daylesford Primary School.
Demand for healthy lunches is increasing, and other schools are keen to come on board.
Our big vision is in front of us.
This vision builds a sustainable model by way of a facility for fish and vegetable production, which is powered by biogas, and is a place for agriculture, and commercial cooking, learning and training.
This will bring enormous economic and social benefits to this, and ultimately many other communities searching for bold interventions that impact their very fabric.
We need to invest in community-designed enterprises that create learning pathways, jobs, a healthy food system, and children, youth and family health and wellbeing all in one.
A small amount can make a huge difference.
Your tax-deductible gift can truly be life-changing for those involved.
We are incredibly grateful for the support of our wider community and look forward to sharing the incredible achievements of our team with you in the future.
Evidence is telling us how food is the solution – the way we grow it, and consume it.
It also tells us about the incredible benefits for children and young people in eating a nutritious diet for their physical and mental health and wellbeing, and participation in school, and community.
We also believe that everyone deserves access to affordable, nutrition every day, especially when learning and working. And for farmers to be paid fair prices.
