Notas do Editor

  1. PCPs program logic and priorities. Agencies funded for IHP program, PCP coordinates. Hume IHP strategy 2012, regional priority of healthy eating IHP planning in Lower Hume identified issue of food insecurity. Poor access to affordable food often leads to increase in cheaper energy dense nutrient poor alternatives. Food insecurity rates.
  2. Funding available from Goulburn Valley Medicare Local to support the IHP plan. Reviewed evidence for an intervention, found rural street harvest project in Wodonga, developed project proposal and received twelve months funding for a project worker. Foodbank developed Street Harvest in 2009 and piloted in Wodonga. The program founder presented to us on the Wodonga initiative to give us some ideas to get started their program consisted of volunteers mapping excess backyard produce and ask residents to participate in the program. Volunteers then collected and redistributed produce to foodshare, community members and Wodonga tafe to cook up meals for foodshare. Also linked in other partners and projects including community gardens, local high school. Also some residents donated land for gardening. Toolkit made available in 2013 outlining process to establish a Street Harvest program.
  3. Funding from Medicare Local for one year pilot with project worker two days/week. As a number of other initiatives were happening in other areas of the catchment, we decided to focus on the Kinglake Ranges to pilot the Street Harvest Project. Rural towns. Kinglake one supermarket, flowerdale one general store. We acknowledged that this area is very different to Wodonga (roughly 4,000 people through five small rural townships compared with a regional city with 37,500 people) Utilised the toolkit as a framework and had 3 objectives
  4. Five community consultations were completed at alternative venues dates and times to inform community of the project and collect input and feedback. Promoted extensively however low attendance at consultations. Community consultation surveys- poor access to fruit and veg, most people travel outside of Murrindindi to obtain good quality and affordable fruit and veg, not aware of whats available locally, street harvest on its own not valued but interested in community gardens, edible landscapes and community cooking programs. food outlet surveys-one supermarket sold fruit and veg, 1 general store sometimes and other not at all. Sourced produce from outside of Murrindindi (occasionally broccoli and berries locally) due to lack of awareness, low supply and affordability of produce; and willing to sell locally grown. Had no excess produce to donate. Baseline surveys on foodshare confirmed no access to fresh fruit and vegetables.
  5. If we want to improve healthy eating, the environment needs to support it Community driven initiatives- example community action research Alexandra district health, volunteer group collected research and asset mapping to identify an intitiaves to improve food security. Triangle food op shop, bag donated produce and sell for $1 at general store. Building on this- food hub for talks and workshops, communal garden, and a weekly cook up.
  6. Report available today and on website under reports.
