Help Bring After School Cooking to Prahran!!
We’re doing it in Fitzroy, Flemington, Collingwood and Richmond and now we’re hoping to start up After School Cooking in Prahran!
To get this up and running we need to raise $5000 and we’re asking for your help to meet this target. Donations of any amount are gratefully received and will go towards ensuring the children living at the Horace Petty public housing estate are able to access this valuable program.
Donations are tax deductible and can be acknowledged with a card or certificate to display in your business, in addition to this we would like to publically thank all business donors on social media as acknowledgement of your generosity and commitment to supporting equity and food security in your local community.
Food insecurity has ongoing negative impacts for children in the short and long-term affecting their academic ability and contributing to life long health issues including obesity, diabetes and heart disease. Community based approaches to improving the access to fresh, healthy and culturally appropriate food are a vital part of the solution to fighting food insecurity, poverty and hunger. Cultivating Community began running an After School Cooking in the Fitzroy Community Kitchen to engage primary school aged children in a program that builds cooking skills, confidence and food literacy. The After School Cooking Program provides children with access to fresh food but also to a positive food experience, teaching skills and knowledge around healthy eating that will serve them for life.
The program has been a huge success and is very popular with kids and families at our other locations. We are excited to bring the same joy to kids in Prahran! To find out more about our After School Cooking program and organisation please visit our website http://www.cultivatingcommunity.org.au/
