What is Country Kitchens
The Queensland Country Women’s Association’s (QCWA) Country Kitchens program is a health promotion program supporting communities across Queensland to adopt healthier lifestyle behaviours.
It is a partnership between the QCWA and the Queensland Government, funded through Health and Wellbeing Queensland.
The Country Kitchens program supports QCWA volunteer Branch and Supporter members, who already have a wealth of cooking knowledge and skills, with training and support to help improve the health and wellbeing of Queenslanders, particularly those living in rural, regional and remote locations.
The Country Kitchens team of Dietitians and Nutritionists provide a training PATHway and support QCWA members who volunteer to become facilitators of the program. Country Kitchens facilitators deliver health promotion activities in their local communities and partner with organisations such as schools, local councils and a wide range of community groups.
In this way the QCWA’s Country Kitchens program is improving food and nutrition literacy, and importantly, influencing behavioural change at a grass roots level, statewide.
