The Ceduna Foodbank has won round four of the SA Healthy Towns Challenge for its work in improving food security and healthy eating.

The Ceduna Foodbank Food Hub has taken out round four of the SA Healthy Towns Challenge Award for its work in improving food security and healthy eating habits.

Funding provided through the Wellbeing SA grants program has assisted Foodbank South Australia in establishing a permanent Food Hub in Ceduna, providing food relief to people in the community. The organisation is arranged to resemble a general store, a convenient way for people experiencing food insecurity to shop.

The Food Hub supports more than 450 people every month, and during the funding period has distributed more than 26,860kg of food relief and 6,768kg of fresh fruit and vegetables. Alongside providing food, it also has volunteer opportunities to increase social connectedness in the community.

The Ceduna Food Hub is all about providing a dignified shopping experience for those experiencing food insecurity in the local area to access good quality and nutritious food.

Greg Pattinson, SA Chief Executive Officer

The annual SA Healthy Towns Challenge has offered grants since 2018 to help regional and rural towns develop programs that cultivate a healthy environment within the community.

Foodbank SA Chief Executive Officer, Greg Pattinson, says “We’re thrilled to receive this award and for the support in establishing a permanent Food Hub in Ceduna.”
