Food Systems Roadmap


Food is essential to everyone – it not only connects people from all walks of life but it has a direct impact on our health and wellbeing.

That’s why we are working with the Central Goldfields Food Network and Sustain: The Australian Food Network to create a Food System Roadmap for our Shire.

The Food System Roadmap is a plan to help our community access healthy, nutritious and sustainable food.

Thank you to the more than 200 people who recently provided input into what healthy food means to them and what they think would make our local systems better.

Some of the themes of the feedback include better nutrition education, more veggie gardens, access to cheaper fresh produce, cooking classes for kids and community, healthy takeaway options, and more markets.

Your feedback will help inform the draft Food Systems Roadmap, which will help us to identify some practical and achievable actions that can be implemented through community partnerships.

The draft Roadmap will be finalised in July, with a further opportunity for the community to review and provide feedback expected to open in August.

Watch this space!
