Port Pirie’s Community FoodHub has taken out the inaugural SA Healthy Towns Challenge Award.
The Community FoodHub was acknowledged for improving food security and healthy eating habits, while demonstrating how a community can come together to better educate each other on healthy eating, reading food labels, cooking, and eating within a budget.
Minister for Health and Wellbeing, Stephen Wade, has said “The Marshall Liberal Government are committed to supporting regional towns in delivering projects to benefit the overall health and wellbeing of their communities.”
The inaugural round of the challenge received an exceptional response in regional South Australia.
Round Three of the SA Healthy Towns Challenge is now open, with a minimum of five grants of up to $50,000 on offer, in an effort to help regional towns develop preventive health programs.
Applications close the 9th of April, with more information here.
