Regional families discover what’s really in their food

Regional families discover what’s really in their food

A food additives seminar held at Wee Waa High School last week has generated widespread interest while also raising important funds for local schools.

ABOVE: Additive Alert: Helen Smith, Louise D’Allura, Lisa Harrison (RichmondPRA) and Paul King (Program Manager, Department of Human Services, Armidale).

A food additives seminar held at Wee Waa High School last week has generated widespread interest while also raising important funds for local schools.

Over the course of two hours, Brisbane-based Home Economist and East Coast’s Additive Alert Community Talk’s presenter Louise D’Allura, helped families learn about food additives, interpreting food labels and alternative food options in an effort to encourage low additive eating. 

The event, ‘Food for a happy and calm community’, was attended by 120 people and raised $2146.80 for local schools.

Parents and teachers who attended the session found it informative.

One of the Organising Committee members, Helen Smith, said the event was a great success.

“Louise shared a lot of information about additives and the effects it can have on our lives and health,” she said.

Federal Government Small Grants Programme

Federal Government Small Grants Programme

Federal Member for New England, the Hon. Barnaby Joyce said the Stronger Communities Programme, announced in this year’s Budget, will deliver $150,000 per year for two years to fund small capital projects which deliver social benefits.

“This is an exciting opportunity for local communities to work with me to identify potential projects which will contribute to our community’s long term vibrancy and viability,” Mr Joyce said.

“I will be establishing a community consultation committee to identify projects which are a priority and to ensure this funding delivers the best possible outcomes for our community. Following community consultation, I will invite identified incorporated not-for-profit and local government organisations to apply for funding.

“Identified applicants can apply for funding of at least $5,000 and up to a maximum of $20,000 and must provide matching cash or in-kind funding on at least a dollar for dollar basis.

“I encourage potential applicants to contact my office on (02) 6761 3080 to discuss projects which meet the eligibility criteria,” Mr Joyce said.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the Stronger Communities Programme guidelines and the Frequently Asked Questions which are available on the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development’s website www.infrastructure.gov.au/SCP
