Hervey Bay Cricket Association are healthy eating champs
Hervey Bay Cricket Association just hit it for six. The south Queensland coast club is the winner of this year’s Good Sports Healthy Eating Club of the Year Award.
The awards is for inspiring change by providing and promoting healthy food and drink options within their club to create a healthier club environment. The club receives $1,000 for its achievement.
“Being part of Good Sports provides our club with access to great resources and support and has improved our knowledge and ability to provide healthy food choices and shows our members and community that we are committed to building a healthier, family friendly environment,” club volunteer, Belinda Geldard said.
Canteen goals at Hervey Bay Cricket
What good canteen doesn’t have a hard working and dedicated volunteer behind it? It’s hard work keeping everyone fed! Let alone with healthy grub.
“Our volunteer Canteen Convener Ellen and has worked extremely hard every weekend over the past few years to provide healthy food options for our members. Fresh fruit, salad boxes, delicious fresh sandwiches, salad rolls and wraps are all available,” Belinda explained.
“A new display cabinet positioned at the front of the canteen counter makes these options more visible, promoting them as the first choice and the prices are kept very reasonable which also encourages our members to choose these delicious options.”
A chilled water fountain has also been donated to the club and will be installed later this year.
Hervey Bay Cricket Club has reached the highest level of the Good Sports program, implementing policies around alcohol management, tobacco, healthy eating and safe transport. Go Hervey!
