Healthy Eating at the City of Tea Tree Gully

Back to project list



Breakfast Club 

The City of Tea Tree Gully is offering students the opportunity to develop and pilot a breakfast program for chilldren aged 0 to 8 years. This project is especially suited to nutrition and psychology students, however students from all diciplines are welcome. 

The program will run from 8am to 9.30am and involve children and their families who attend the local child care centre, kindergarden and local R7-school. The Breakfast Club will includes opportunities for education on healthy eating/ living and give children access to an amazing playground.

Students are asked to scope this project in collaboration with local services and not for profit agencies.


Community Cafe and Cooking Classes

Cafe 82 on Valiant runs from the Holden Hill Community Centre twice monthly.   The cafe provides affordable and nutritious meals and brings local residents together in the spirit of community.   Men from the local Men's Shed; local families and Holden Hill residents share a meal which is planned, budgetted prepared and served by UniSA students and volunteers at the Community Centre.

This is a much-loved and very successful community venture which reduces social isolation and brings people together.

Now the Cafe team is set also running Pop-Up Cafes and  multi-cultural cooking classes through the Surrey Downs Community Centre.
