Food & Water 4 Life
The Walgett Food Forum was held on 8th April 2019 to learn from and act on WAMS, DEG and broader Walgett community concerns and perspectives around food, nutrition and water. The aims of the Yuwaya Ngarra-li Food Forum were to:
• Provide data and research about what is known about food issues relevant to Aboriginal people in Walgett and impacts on long-term health and wellbeing
• Gather community members and critical services, organisations, and other stakeholders together to discuss food issues in Walgett
• Discuss positive action and strategies and evidence-based solutions to inform long-term planning.
