The food we and our families eat is so important for our health and wellbeing. ‘Good food’, delivered by a great ‘food system’, is vital to the health of all New Zealanders. Much has been done by communities in South Auckland, public health workers, and researchers at AUT, to promote good food at low cost. This one day symposium brings together community, researchers, students, government, and business to share successful projects and related research on good food.
As well as sharing our experiences, we wish to consult together on what further steps can be taken to improve the food system, especially for South Auckland communities. What further actions might community, government, researchers, and business take to improve the food system? How can we work effectively together to provide better quality food, at reasonable cost, to our communities and families? What are the challenges and opportunities we face?
AUT South, as home to Public and Environmental Health and the Food Network at AUT, are delighted to host this event, working in partnership with local community.
Date: 11 October 2018 8:30am - 4:00pm at AUT South Campus, 640 Great South Road, Manukau
