Does WELLfed work?
We've had amazing feedback on WELLfed from various sources in the community - including leaders within schools, primary healthcare, social workers and other agencies.
BUT it is the WELLfed Learners themselves who are the keys to unlocking change within their own lives and what they have to say is the most compelling.
Some WELLfed Learners have said:
"It’s amazing how a small cooking class has changed my life. I have learned to cook, and budget and I feel encouraged."
"WELLfed was better than I thought. I thought I’d just come along once, because I’m quite shy, but I felt comfortable and welcome. I’ve learned new things. I’ve definitely gotten better at cooking."
"We used to get takeaways Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. Now just once a week or less.”
"I never made homemade lunches before and didn’t buy fruit and vegetables at the market - now I do both of these."
"I have 8 children and my spending has gone down from $500 per week to around $300 per week. Also we’re eating healthier food and more vegetables. I have received some kitchen utensils and measuring equipment and connections for help with setting up a vegetable garden that I didn’t have before."
"Now I’m making Anzac biscuits and muffins instead of buying biscuits and snacks for my family. I can give baking as a gift. I appreciate Becs and Kim sharing their experience and giving us ideas."
