We are the charity tackling the obesity and chronic disease challenges we face. And we are using food to do it. Because food might be the biggest threat to Aussie health, but it is also our single most powerful tool.
Less than 4% of adults – and less than 1% of children aged 2–18 years – consume the minimum recommended serves of vegetables and legumes.
Two in three Australian adults and one in four Australian children are overweight or obese. Poor diet is the leading contributor to our growing waistlines.
And 89% of all deaths in Australia are due to diet-related diseases.
We want to see an Australia where every person, particularly Australian children, do not experience the impact of diseases related to poor diet.
We believe that food can be the common language and driver to improve our health and the health of the planet.
Our mission is to make nutritious, real and sustainable food accessible, affordable and available for all.
We do this by focussing on projects with reach, co-ordination, revenue and positive change. Engaging, collaborating and advocating to achieve impact.
