Description of the charities activities and outcomes
SAKGF is established for the sole charitable purpose of the advancement of health by encouraging young people to develop positive lifelong food behaviours – contributing to the prevention of childhood obesity; and contributing to the healthy development and wellbeing of young people by introducing them to the benefits of shared garden and kitchen experiences.

SAKGF does this by providing a program framework, professional development, educational resources, a community of practice and ongoing direct support to educators in early learning centres, primary and secondary schools. SAKGF products and services support centres and schools to deliver ‘pleasurable food education’ to children through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program model.

SAKGF works with government, philanthropic, corporate and community partners to achieve our vision, working particularly at the intersection of health and education to deliver innovative services that meet the needs of educators, children and families. Independent evaluations have demonstrated the positive impact of pleasurable food education on students and wider communities, from increased fruit and vegetable consumption to improved community engagement.

SAKGF supports a growing membership of approximately 1500 (as of July 2020) schools and centres across Australia, and advocates for the delivery of pleasurable food education in health, education, government and public circles.
