A novel transformational model for school food education in Pacific coastal communities

The Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) has partnered with Monash Education to undertake a scoping study to inform the design of a novel model of community engaged food education in the Pacific. The model moves beyond simple nutritional knowledge acquisition to develop a broader range of context-appropriate food literacies that reach across individual nutrition, agricultural practices and food environments.

The new model will serve to empower young people, their families and communities to take action towards transforming agricultural production practices and local food environments.
