Seniors Experience the Delights of The Southwest

70 enthusiastic seniors were treated to “A Taste of the Southwest Through Food” at our Healthy Lifestyles event held on 15th August 2022 at the Vincent Community Centre in Leederville.
SRCWA partnered with the Southern Forests Food Council and the City of Vincent to showcase the produce and activities on offer for seniors in the southwest of our amazing state. The aim of this event was to encourage seniors to venture out, eat healthy and get some activity into their daily routine.
Our event was opened by State President Phil Paddon who introduced Leah Vagel of The Southern Forests Food Council who shared a short video, this was followed by a presentation by Danni from SRCWA on Pole Walking its benefits and technique. We then moved on to Leah who provided a cooking demonstration using fresh produce from the Southwest region, making Genuinely Southern Forests Roasted Cauliflower Fritters with Truffle Mayonnaise (click here for the recipe)
