Emergency Relief: More Than Just a 'Band-Aid' Tertiary Intervention

In 2012 the NOURISH network commissioned a research project to increase understanding of the availability of nutritious food choices for consumers within the Emergency relief sector where a mini-grocery model was being implemented.

An analysis of logistics (where food is obtained; how it is stocked, displayed and handled), retail and marketing techniques, and the availability of healthy and non-core food items was used to consider the opportunities to apply retail and marketing strategies to improve amenability and nutritious food choices.

This project was run in conjunction with Deakin University and Yarra Valley Community Health Service.
