Foodbank WA's Food Sensations® is a practical nutrition education initiative which has been developed for Foodbank WA's school and community networks.
Incorporating elements of the WA Department of Health FOODcents® nutrition and budgeting program, Food Sensations® aims to improve knowledge and understanding of nutritious foods, and provide the skills to purchase and prepare them. It covers a range of food related topics including:
basic nutrition principles
food preparation and cooking skills
school and community kitchen gardens
