Breville supports Indi Kindi and nutrition

We are very grateful to our partner Breville for gifting our Indi Kindi kitchens in Borroloola and Tennant Creek with new kitchen appliances to support the delivery of hot nutritious meals and fresh fruit. These included products from the collection. ‘An Aboriginal Culinary Journey‘, a range of decorated appliances celebrating 60,000 years of Aboriginal food, culture and community.

Many children and adults in communities like Borroloola and Tennant Creek in the Northern Territory do not have access to high quality, nutritious food, or appropriate cooking and storage facilities and equipment, and are not able to eat adequate amounts of vegetables and fruit.

The cost of food in remote Northern Territory stores is on average 60% higher than in Darwin supermarkets. These nutritional disadvantages impact children’s physical development as well as their ability to focus and learn.

Indi Kindi promotes nutrition, health and wellbeing through their provision of nutritious meals and snacks from a dietician designed menu, ensuring improved nutrition for children enrolled in the program, staff, and family members who attend the sessions. In addition, Indi Kindi staff undertake nutrition and safe food handling training.

The team independently purchases ingredients and prepares approximately 3,000+ healthy hot meals for children, families and staff members each year. This ensures the individuals who run and attend Indi Kindi sessions receive high quality, nutritious meals and are taught how to shop for, prepare and cook it.
