Join us for a jam-packed two days of immersive, vibrant celebration, as we explore the food we eat, where it comes from, and what this means for our health.
Using art and play, The Little Food Festival offers a simple and fun opportunity for little ones to consider complex food topics such as health and sustainability. Grounded in playful education, with kid-friendly, bite-sized learning sessions designed by lecturers and pre service teachers from the Faculty of Education and lecturers and design students from MADA at Monash University as well as other terrific contributors from the community.
We want to put the fun back into food, and grow a future generation that understands the power of the plate. Little Food Festival provides an opportunity for children and their families to recognise food as more than just fuel, so that they can play an active role in developing strong and healthy communities.
For two days only, Little Food Festival will fill the main square with composting stations, native foods, eco-warrior workshops, exhibitions, cooking demonstrations and more. We have an incredible line-up of contributors including the Sage Garden, Zero Waste Victoria, Bee Healthy, Phenomenom! and more to be announced. Through these hands-on workshops, kids will be invited to listen, question, taste, and explore the power that food has to positively influence our health, the environment and community around us.
