This briefing paper by the Centre for Social Impact (CSI) Flinders responds to an initiative of Wellbeing SA to scope a community food education model for South Australia (SA). This paper directly addresses the recommendations in the Improving Individual and Household Food Security Outcomes in South Australia Final Report (Government of South Australia, 2018). Information on a diverse range of initiatives was synthesised from 102 published articles and 13 SA initiatives from the food relief sector, community centres, local governments, social enterprises, and other for-purpose/non-government organisations. There were several common ways to deliver community food education, which are presented in a 'typology' of three types: Curriculum initiatives, Capacity building initiatives and Community development initiatives, along with recommendations and opportunities.
- Food education
- Food security
