Making healthy options affordable
Foodies play an active role in ensuring the community has access to affordable and healthy food by the provision of healthy food packs through food co-ops. Food packs not only provide a healthy meal, but also provide information about preparing and cooking healthy meals, and offer cooking demonstrations and tastings of the meal packs on offer.
Enfield Foodies work with Community Food SA at Kilburn to run a Food Co-op which makes purchasing and cooking healthy food much easier for community members, especially for those on low incomes, by offering meal packs as easy, healthy and cheap options for dinner.
It’s so important because it helps build the local capacity of the community; it helps improve the nutrition & health of the community & the Foodies as peer educators really filter that through the community.
