BGF’s Eat Well, Live Well program is a 10-week healthy eating workshop for PLHIV.
The program is run by BGF’s Program Coordinator and the Community Programs Coordinator at Surry Hills Neighbourhood Centre (SHNC) in NSW. Both of the Coordinators are HIV positive which allows them a unique insight into the value of living a healthy life with HIV. The SHNC Community Programs Coordinator is a qualified chef.
At each session, participants meet for a 3 ½ hour workshop where they learn about a range of issues affecting health and nutrition, as well as practical advice on healthy cooking and eating.
“I would have no hesitation in recommending this course to others. It helps re-stabilise social skills and being able to work with others.” Bryan, 62.
