SA Community Foodies is a South Australian nutrition program that aims to build the capacity of individuals and communities to make healthier food choices by training and supporting volunteer community members (‘Foodies’) to act as agents for change.
Budget Friendly Recipes were developed by a group of volunteers from Foodbank and Community Foodies who worked alongside OPAL (Obesity Prevention and Lifestyle) and are designed to require only minimal cooking equipment – many can be produced using basic kitchenette facilities.
The DAA has recipes for different occasions, ages and budgets. They also include recipes to aid particular medical conditions such as gluten free (to help with Coeliac disease) or lactose free (to help with lactose intolerance).
With the price of food rising, eating healthily while trying to stick to a budget can be challenging, however with a little planning and some useful tips, buying and preparing delicious healthy food on a budget is not as hard as it may seem.
The Get Healthy Information and Coaching Service® (Get Healthy Service) is a free telephone service staffed by qualified health coaches aimed at supporting adults make lifestyle changes regarding:
- healthy eating
- physical activity
- how to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
Community gardens are places where people come together to grow fresh food, learn, relax and make new friends. There are a number of community gardening initiatives happening in the city that you can be involved in.
Through involving people in community gardens, the project is all about encouraging and supporting community members to grow, gather and share food together.
