Young people in front of yHunger poster

The Yhunger program, funded and supported by NSW Health aims to improve food access and physical activity options for young people, 12-24 years of age, who are experiencing or are at risk of homelessness.

Young people living in poverty who have faced significant challenges like homelessness are extremely resilient. Yet they may have not had the opportunity to learn basic skills in the kitchen and are limited by time and very tight budgets.

The new Yhunger cookbooks are available to young people and youth services and offer simple and fast recipes with step-by-step instruction that cost less than $4 per serve. Each recipe aims to increase the intake of fruit and vegetables and uses common ingredients and basic kitchen equipment.
