FoodREDI Community Nutrition Education
By bringing people together for a series of free, hands-on nutrition education workshops, Australian Red Cross FoodREDi food education programs teach people how to get value for money and achieve a balanced diet in a relaxed atmosphere. Red Cross helps families make sustainable changes to diet, physical activity, food budgeting and healthy weight, helping them to improve their health, prevent and manage chronic disease better and learn skills for economic self-reliance.
The nutrition education program is holistic, multifaceted and community focused - a healthy lifestyle program that targets a wide range of vulnerable and hard to reach groups including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, people from culturally and linguistically diverse communities, migrants, refugees, prisoners, the elderly, people with mental illness and young people.
Red Cross offers free training sessions on healthy eating, delivered by staff and volunteers to groups over four to eight sessions with flexible timeframes.
