Community Foodies

Staff involved: Gwyn Jolley

This statewide project is auspiced by Noarlunga Health Services and is funded by DHS. The project aims to increase access of people on low incomes to nutrition information and skills, using a peer education model.

SACHRU is supporting the evaluation process, in particular the processes and outcomes associated with training provided to nutritionists/dietitians and the perceptions of community trainees.

Data collection will involve a survey of community foodies (the peer trainees) and a focus group with the nutritionists/dietitians involved in the project.
