April Meal Planning Workshops

April Meal Planning Workshops

Interested in learning more about healthy meal planning and cooking on a budget? Come along to a 2-part workshop (which includes a cooking component) run by the Cockburn Healthy Lifestyle Program for just $15!

Meal planning is an art, not a science. There is no perfect method or formula and it involves some creativity. It takes practice and some trial and error to find out what works best for your individual lifestyle. Most importantly, the goal is not perfection but rather that you are taking steps and actions toward better health. So don’t be intimidated if you are new to meal planning! Once the art of meal planning is mastered, it can save you time, money and a whole lot of frustration.

Cockburn Community Trek

This year we people celebrated the “Share the Space graciously” message while going around the lake on foot, cycle, scooter or in a wheelchair. We encouraged walking , cycling , public transport  and carpooling, NOT driving as  a single occupant in a vehicle to get to the event. Once again this event proved to be very popular with a number of the Heart Foundation walking groups joining us for the 3km and 6km walk or ride followed by a light morning tea. We were also fortunate enough to be joined by “Famous Sharron” who posed for a few pictures with the Heart Foundation walking organisers, local coordinators and the Mayor of the City of Cockburn himself. The 2018 Community Trek will be held at Manning park on the 16th November. If you or anyone else you know are interested in joining or starting up your own walking group throughout the City of Cockburn head to the Heart Foundation website at  or express your interest by Contacting your Local Coordinator by emailing [email protected].
