A SERIES of brochures aimed at improving locals’ access to healthy food will be launched in Wangaratta on Thursday.

The brochures are the latest project of the Community Food For All Forum, which will hold its next gathering at Purbrick Hall (alongside Holy Trinity Cathedral) on Thursday from 10am.

“We knew there were lots of good activities happening that we had unearthed through the network, but there was no way of making that information accessible to the broader community,” CFFA member and Gateway Health health promotion officer Barb Young said.
