With WAMS staff and Walgett IGA we are producing a variety of healthy supermarket initiatives. Meal of the Month promotes a healthy affordable meal
and provides taste tests in Walgett IGA. Raffles give away the ingredients of the Meal of the Month, and contestants are asked to cook up the Meal of the Month and display their meals on Facebook for more prizes. With our Yuwaya Ngarrali colleagues at The George Institute for Global Health, WAMS and DEG staff performed a supermarket audit in February 2023 and gave feedback first to DEG and WAMS and then to the Walgett IGA Manager, who is an important collaborator in our program. We are working to ensure that our community has better access to affordable nutritious fresh foods.
