The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation has a strong history of collaborating with LGAs, community health centres, primary care providers and local service organisations to deliver a range of health, education and community benefits.

Let us give you the tools to support children, young people and families in your local area, improving community wellbeing and social cohesion, while delivering on the implementation of community health and wellbeing, sustainability, and local food plans. 

We are extremely impressed with the work of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation at the local neighbourhood level on issues such as attacking obesity and teaching healthy living habits to our children. 

– John Hennessey, Municipal Association of Victoria

 

 

What's on offer?

Councils or community organisations can purchase Program membership bundles for local schools and services to get them started on their pleasurable food journey. Purchasing councils or organisations will also be provided with the tools to get involved with the Kitchen Garden Program themselves, augmenting organisational knowledge around growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal food.

With options for supporting three, six or 12 schools or early learning services in your area, the benefits are vast – you could be funding as many as 108,000 positive student experiences per year, as well as 8640 community volunteering opportunities. 

See the full list of membership bundles below.
