Background of Kurilpa Kitchen
The Kurilpa Kitchen project is the outcome from a previous project of the Australian Pensioners’ and Superannuants’ League, Qld Inc. called “What’s Food Got to do With It? – Barriers to Healthy Eating Choices for Older People.” This nutrition and social support group has operated in the community since 1994.
