About Us

NEST is a national education program teaching people in need skills and knowledge to nurture themselves through healthier eating choices and food preparation through a series of hands-on cooking and nutrition workshops.

Designed around the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating, participants learn about:

  • nutritious healthy eating choices
  • low cost meal planning
  • budgeting
  • reading food labels
  • correct food storage
  • shopping and cooking tips
  • minimising food waste

The NEST program is facilitated on-site and flexible in delivery, workshops can be tailored for cultural and dietary requirements.

Training is also offered to staff, cooks and volunteers at charitable organisations, to help increase understanding and improve skills on using food delivered by OzHarvest or to support existing programs already in place. After each workshop, participants share a nourishing meal together encouraging social inclusiveness and enhance community connections.
