Food programs in the West

There’s two great new food programs starting in Braybrook and Maidstone as part of the Maribyrnong Council Incredible, Edible, Moveable Maribyrnong project.

Koorie Kitchen – Chat & Yarn
The Incredible, Edible, Movable Maribyrnong project in partnership with the Western Region Health Centre has established a Koorie Kitchen – Chat & Yarn program. The program aims to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to learn and develop their skills around healthy eating. This is a FREE program run by Indigenous workers. You can come along to share in a meal while at the same time learning about healthy eating for you and your family and cooking on a budget with traditional and non-traditional meals. Each Koorie Kitchen Program will run for eight weeks beginning on 2 August at Braybrook Community Centre. You are welcome to attend more than one program.

Men in the Kitchen
The Incredible, Edible, Movable Maribyrnong project in partnership with Maidstone Community Centre has established a men’s community kitchen, to provide men with the opportunity to improve their knowledge, skills and confidence to prepare and cook healthy affordable meals in a supportive and social environment. The Men’s Community Kitchen is for men living in and around Maidstone and Braybrook and will run on the fourth Monday of every month from 27 June. For more information contact the Centre on 9317 0747.
