The program brings people together to share ideas and experiences around food and healthy lifestyles. Sitting down together and sharing meals allows for this to happen. Food is also a good way to connect and build understanding between different people and cultures. The program is delivered over 2 sessions; the last session being the cooking day. On completion of the program, participants will have an increased awareness to make healthy food and lifestyle choices. If you would like to participate in Access Community Housing’s Better CHEFS Program, please contact Gavin at the office on 4031 6702 for more information.
