Expansion of the Fuel Your Future program

Foodbank WA is seeking information from organisations and their youth networks to inform the expansion of the Fuel Your Future program in metropolitan Western Australia.
The Fuel Your Future program is a food literacy and cooking program for youth aged 12 to 18 in regional and remote areas of the Pilbara region. This program is tailored for youth to help them improve their food and cooking knowledge, skills and behaviours toward healthy eating. This program involves fun, hands-on educational activities on topics including:
  • the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating;
  • the Australian Dietary Guidelines;
  • food label reading;
  • fat, sugar and salt investigation;
  • food safety and storage;
  • hand hygiene;
  • knife safety; and
  • food preparation and cooking. 

This survey will take around 5 to 10 minutes to complete and all information will be kept private and confidential. This information will be used by Foodbank WA to guide the structure, lesson plans and delivery of the new and improved Fuel Your Future program for metropolitan Western Australia. You can choose to opt out at any time. 

This six-month scholarship project is supported by the Australian Health Promotion Association (WA Branch), with funding support by Healthway. 

For any questions please contact Kalyisah Farid on (08) 9463 3804 or email on kalyisah.farid@foodbankwa.org.au.

Thank you for your time.
