Indigenous Australians have a 10 year lower life expectancy compared with the rest of Australia. From my experience over the past three years in the remote community of Kintore, there is much we can do to change the future for these people. Diet related chronic disease has a major impact on these communities health outcomes and unfortunately, there is a lack of access and utilisation of fresh fruit and vegetables in remote communities. Setting up community gardens and food preparation would serve as much needed start to access fresh food to accompany locally hunted proteins such as goanna and kangaroo.
We can change the world for these people and help them #bethechange in their own future.
