Cookups, Cooking Workshops and Community Events can all be part of a JLF community visit.
The Kukumbat Gudwan Daga Cookbook was developed in conjunction with Fred Hollows Foundation and contains a range of healthy recipes for preparing family meals on a budget, providing an alternative to fast food and foods with high fat and sugar content.
The JLF Thumbs Up! team, with help from community members and stores, often put on a community cookup using recipes from the cookbook. They also try to include a cooking demonstration as part of their schools program, reinforcing the “Good Tucker – Long Life” healthy food message and showing how easy it is to eat healthy!
