Good Food for Me

The Good Food for Me program is aimed at helping people to have up-to-date evidence-based knowledge to make nutritious and budget-friendly food choices to maintain and lead a healthy lifestyle. The program is facilitated by an occupational therapist with input from an accredited nutritionist/dietitian.

Participants are given opportunities to contribute to discussions, have a hands-on experience to prepare easy meals and enjoy a tasting afterwards.

The program will:

  • Provide information to help you make better choices to improve physical and mental health.
  • Provide tools and teach participants how to read nutrition labels to make wise food purchases.
  • Help participants to cook budget-friendly meals, and come up with ideas to reduce food waste and save money.
  • Teach safe food handling and storage ideas.

This program is for residents aged 65+ (50+ for Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander identity).

Refreshments provided.
