Need For Feed
Need for Feed is an exciting new cooking program
for secondary school students in years 8 to 10 in schools
across Queensland. The program is designed to improve
student's confidence and skills in preparing healthy food, and in
the long term, contribute to curbing the rise of type 2
diabetes and other chronic diseases.
Need for Feed offers students a total of 20 hours of fun filled
cooking action and health eating activities in the kitchen. Classes
consist of 15 to 20 students and are run by a qualified
facilitator, outside of school hours and on school grounds.
The program provides students with the opportunity to cook and
try a range of foods, from pizzas and pastas to healthy cakes and
fruit bakes. Students receive a work book that includes program
recipes and also a chef's hat, to help them become young master
chefs in the making.
Programs are running continuously across the state and schools
can commence at any time. Diabetes QLD provides each school with
funding to ensure the program is a success and students are charged
a contribution fee of only $20 in total to attend the program.
