In partnership with YMCA Canberra and the ACT Council of P&C Associations, we will be working with 8 ACT Government high schools to transform the food environment within their school. They will receive:

  • a funky furniture “café style” fit out made from recycled materials
  • local café champions and mentors to work with students and the school canteen
  • Entrepreneurs: IYM design-thinking curriculum to empower students to lead the process 
  • Food&Me nutrition education resources to build credible nutrition knowledge 
  • professional learning for teachers and workshops for food service providers
  • ”Shark tank” style pitch events for students to celebrate their innovations
  • $1000 in seed funding for selected school projects
  • personalised support from the IYM team at ACT Health

Transformations begin in semester two 2018. Watch this space for more information on how they are progressing.
