The project aims to trial a monitoring and evaluation learning approach to assist community based organisations and services in remote Australia to improve the food system and services they deliver to provide an affordable and healthy food supply. This entails building capacity in utilising a collaborative continuous improvement model that requires regular assessment of the food system, action plans and timely feedback on progress.
The anticipated outcomes of the project are improvements in food security for community people through a focus on the quality and performance of the food environment and nutrition services. Improved health outcomes are expected in the medium and long term given the improved quality of food system practices and enhanced intersectoral capacity to address factors influencing food security.
