Community Foodies is a locally based nutrition program that promotes and supports healthy eating in the community. Foodies are specially trained local volunteers who have a knack for cooking, food preparation and a passion for spreading healthy cooking and eating messages. Through demonstrations, events and tastings, the Foodies encourage people to make healthier food choices.
The Foodies work in conjunction with forums, community groups and local schools.
A 6 week period of training is undertaken to become a Community Foodie, including theory and practical sessions.
