The Good Foundation
Now seeking sponsors for our remote Indigenous communities program
The Good Foundation has recently completed a tailored a version of the Jamie Oliver's Ministry of Food and Learn Your Fruit and Veg programs specifically for the Indigenous communities in the Atherton Tablelands area of QLD.
As an organization we see this as a blue print for how we want to approach communities moving forward. Upskilling members of the community and creating sustainability, enabling the program to continue after we leave so that the positive ripple will continue in communities for years to come.
Since July 2015 we have successfully delivered our programs to 3 remote Indigenous communities. Cherbourg in July 2015, reaching 186 participants, Mossman Gorge in June 2016, reaching 173 participant and our recent visit to the Atherton tablelands reaching 100 participants.
We are currently seeking expressions of interest from other communities in QLD who would benefit from our wonderful programs and are seeking sponsors to help make the difference in creating a positive transformation for these future Indigenous communities with our mobile kitchen. If interested please contact our CEO Siobhan Boyle below.
