HEALTHY FOOD PROGRAM

At Gowrie Street, we believe that every student deserves access to nutritious food options that fuel their bodies and minds for learning. We are proud to introduce our Healthy Eating Program tailored specifically to support our students and our community. With a focus on accessibility, education, and empowerment, our program aims to promote healthier lifestyles and improve academic performance among all our students.

Mission

Our mission is simple yet profound: to ensure that every student has access to nutritious meals and the knowledge to make healthy food choices. We understand the challenges that families may face in accessing healthy food options, in a time of increased food pricing and cost of living and we are committed to breaking down barriers and providing support to promote overall well-being.

Program Highlights

  1. Through our program, disadvantaged students will have access to balanced and wholesome meals during school hours. We work closely with food service providers to ensure that our meals meet the highest standards of nutritional value.

  2.  We believe that education is key to fostering healthy eating habits. Our program includes education that focuses on topics such 'what are healthy options' and how healthy options prmote learning and wellbeing. By empowering students with knowledge, we aim to equip them with the tools they need to make healthier choices both in and out of school.

  3.  We understand that addressing food insecurity requires a collaborative effort. That's why we partner with local organizations such as Shepparton Foodshare, and community resources to expand the reach of our program and provide additional support to students and their families, through our Community Pantry.

  4. Our school environment plays a crucial role in shaping students' attitudes towards food and health. We strive to create a positive and supportive atmosphere where healthy eating is celebrated and encouraged. We are dedicated to fostering a culture of health and well-being throughout our school community.
