New Healthy Sporting Clubs Program coming soon

  • 21 March

    Healthway is offering up to $4,000 in funding to Western Australian (WA) community sporting clubs competing in a recognised competition over the winter 2019 season.


    As part of the Healthy Sporting Club Program, Healthway has engaged the services of the WA School Canteen Association to achieve the following objectives:


    - increase healthy food options at club run canteens or kiosks


    - reduce sugary drinks sold within club run canteens or kiosks


    - reduce, wherever possible, the promotion of unhealthy messages or brands which undermine Healthway objectives


    - improve club member awareness of healthy eating choices


    - educate and up-skill canteen managers and/or staff in offering healthy food and drinks in community sporting venues.


    Healthway works in partnership to build a healthy and more active Western Australia. The Healthy Sporting Club Program supports one of our five key priority areas, increasing healthy eating.


    Applications can be lodged through Healthway’s eApplication Form via the website portal in April 2019, and will remain open until 12 noon on Friday 17 May 2019.
