Mrs. Valerie Stevenson, QCWA Quilpie Branch

My name is Valerie Stevenson. I am a member of Quilpie Branch in the Warrego Division. I have been a Branch Facilitator for just over 12 months now. My other hat within QCWA is Branch Secretary. When I am not wearing my Fabulous Facilitator hat, I occasionally like to write poems when I’m in the mood.

I really like the idea of trying to encourage people of all ages to enjoy eating healthy food. I believe that fast foods play too big of a role in our world today and we need to reduce this. The five key messages are a great idea, especially for our young people. I would like to see people of all ages eating and enjoying more vegetables, we have such a wonderful selection these days, fresh or frozen.

I am a background person. Michelle Donohue and I work well together as she is excellent with front of house. My likes are cooking and knitting. Together with Michelle, I have facilitated several Country Kitchens Showcases at our Cent Auctions, Soap Making Day, Biggest Morning Tea and our Pop-up Market which went for 18 days. We have connected one on one with hundreds of people of all ages. We have had many discussions about our cookbooks and quite a few sales! Our branch members have been very supportive and have lots of fun with sit less, move more! We have taste testers for recipes promotions at meetings and all events.
