Get Stuffed Food Network is a food networked launched in the Latrobe Valley in 2016, focused on job creation, food access and social cohesion. It is comprised of five intiatives:

  1. The 50 Mile Farmers Market & Directory - local producer marketplace

  2. Get Herbed - local food growing entrepreneurship and land sharing

  3. Get Growing - organic food growing and education

  4. Get Swapped - decentralised excess produce sharing

  5. Get Cheffed - live competitive local foodie event

 

Get Stuffed is about strengthening the local food economy, creating jobs and improving community health. The Latrobe Valley has an unemployment rate of 9.6% (at July, 2016) and one of the highest rates of obesity in the country at 75%. By alleviating income inequality through job creation and skill building, we are tackling the root causes of poor health. We're also making fresh, locally produced food more abundant and accessible in the process.
