This inspiring and fun program changes children’s relationship with food. It was founded by Stephanie Alexander AO, one of Australia’s most recognised cooks, food educators and authors, in 2004.
The purpose is to educate children and young people about fresh, seasonal, delicious food so they form positive food habits for life. Our beautiful school grounds set across 5 acres with large veggie patches, provides students with the perfect environment to grow, harvest, prepare and share organic, fresh produce and meals.

We can also see this program having a positive impact on the mental health and wellbeing of our students, as they build resilience when trying new things, work collaboratively and enjoy sharing in experiences with their peers.
