HEALTH AND NUTRITION
AFFLIP Coordinator: Trevor Tiller and Irene Rowe
TWG Coordinator: Glen Pardillo
The Health and Nutrition program supports all schools with the provision of gardening equipment, basic first aid supplies and the promotion of first aid training.
AFFLIP focused initially on vegetable gardens and fish farming and has more recently also supported major projects in aquaponics, hydroponics, elevated greenhouses, plant nurseries and wicking beds; all of which have been designed to intensify food production and increase output to supplement the feeding programs of all schools.
AFFLIP has contributed $82,000 to support the Health and Nutrition program. The SMEC Foundation has been a significant partner with this program with a $16,000 donation in 2016 and another for $12,200 in 2021.
