Mem's Soul Food Productions Inc.

Grant amount: $7,200

Murwillumbah-based organisation, Mem’s Soul Food (MSF) helps girls develop value life skills through a range of activities such as cooking, culture, music, wellbeing, health, nutrition, beauty and focuses on the participants finding their passions, purpose and targets in life.

MSF Founder and Creative Director Mem Hockley said good mental health and wellbeing are important so that people can reach their goals for physical health, education, employment and relationships.

“They are essential building blocks for a happy and successful life, a thriving community and a healthy economy,” she said.

“Our program promotes both physical and mental health. It provides knowledge, understanding, tools and skills for girls to teach them how to live a healthy and active life.”
