About this cause
myChange Foundation helps educate families about the importance of healthy diets, lifestyles and exercise. Recent funding has enabled us to extend our reach beyond primary schools and work with families directly by delivering healthy cooking sessions. We have also created a "Learning Garden" where children, adults and members of the local community plant and cultivate vegetables with the aim of developing a farmers' market to be held on school property.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Having built up good relationships with local schools, our reach extends to more than 1000 children and their families. We will utilise this reach to organise a monthly farmers' market at one of the schools, create a "Learning Garden" to show people how to grow their own foods and hold cooking demonstrations for the community to help families prepare their own sauces, jams, chutneys, etc.
