HappyWhenFit Healthy Schools and Communities Program
Proudly supported by the bunbury farmers market
The partnership between Happywhenfit and the Bunbury Farmers Market organically developed through our shared values and vision around community and youth health. The BFM have supported Happywhenfit workshops from the start by supplying the delicious fresh produce and contributing to the prizes for the Happywhenfit Youth Health Ambassador Awards.
Our shared vision is to educate and empower healthier and happier communities; to inspire a generation of change.
What is the HappyWhenFit schools program about?
The purpose of the healthy schools program is to educate, inspire and empower students, teachers, parents and the wider community with the tools to make healthy choices. We want to connect school, home and community environments for the best possible integrated approach to health and wellbeing.
The program involves hands on, practical demonstrations and food preparation to show our young people how they can practice and apply healthy food choices into their everyday lives. It is further reinforced with the parent/teacher session, so that everything the students are learning can be reinforced and practiced in school and home environments.
The program is an opportunity for the Bunbury Farmers Market to give back to its community and positively influence its local people not only through the fresh food that they provide, but also through the education around how to use those foods to create quality nutrition, variety, and taste.
