Healthy Eating

Healthy eating is one of the key actions to increase overall wellbeing and prevent chronic disease in the Alpine Shire. Our health promotion work involves creating supportive environments in the community which make healthy food choices the easiest choice.

What we do

We support community initiatives and projects such as community gardens & food swaps as a way of increasing access to affordable, local, fresh produce. 

We also support these projects to work collaboratively, as the ‘Alpine Fresh Food Network’, to deliver educational opportunities to the community - gardening based workshops such as composting & growing, as well as preserving skills to utilise available produce at different times of the year. 

The ‘Alpine Home Harvest’ project, managed by Alpine Health, is a grow your own at home initiative which aims to increase the availability of fresh food for members of the community who, for a variety of reasons, may not be able to access it consistently. 

Healthy eating also involves creating a supportive environment for bubs, parents & carers as breastfeeding, when possible, is the best start for babies. We support various community initiatives which help to do this including the ‘Breastfeeding Welcome Here’ campaign.  

 

Who we service

Healthy eating initiatives focus on the community as a whole and cover a wide range of skills and interests.
