As a small (but passionate) volunteer-led charity, we actively support youth service providers, youth workers and carers, especially within regional communities where we also collaborate with local business and the not for profit community. We were told that food education is difficult when you teach kids who are marginalised, with low literacy levels and such emotional damage that they are constantly tempted to harm themselves. We set out to provide a solution.
Our iPhone App, contains seasonal food recipes with fantastic videos and music and classic dishes that can be made without knives and some without heat. It has a simple design and makes learning fun. We gift the App to young people who need it and our volunteers use it as a training resource. It has been downloaded by our supporters and is used by other educators based here and overseas who appreciate the content because we’ve thought really hard about the needs of our end-users i.e. young people learning to make mindful food choices.
Oh What a Night!
Our first ever fundraising Gala was a huge success. We are busy working on updating our app! Thanks to the delicious Anliette for the amazing photography (click on the photo to see more of her work).
