Gateway Health supports local food networks in Albury Wodonga and Wangaratta, that aim to strengthen and support local food systems so that everyone in our communities has access to nutritious, affordable foods.

These networks include partnerships with local government, environment groups, local producers and retailers/eateries, neighbourhood houses, and the community.

Gateway Health has been an active partner in the development and implementation of this strategy.
