The Youth Food Movement Australia don’t believe in telling people what to do, but educating and arming young folks with the skills, knowledge and experience to make them "food literate."

Their approach is based on the belief that peer-to-peer learning is the most powerful way to create change. They aim to make complex issues around food accessible, tangible and human. Above all, they create projects that appeal to young people’s sense of play with neither being prescriptive nor dogmatic in their approach.

YFM organised an array of engaging events that their individual chapters implement on their respective turf. Their projects tend to be well curated affairs that reduce the distance, foster transparency and engender dialogue between growers and eaters and build the food smarts of young Australians.

Heaps Cooked is one of the YFMA’s events framed in the context of an edible rooftop garden right near Redfern station, which offers workshops on seasonality, a grazing table with a spring menu, booze, the opportunity to help create an Australian seasonal foods calendar under the guidance of tattoo artist Sophia Baughan and a raffle, with the proceeds going to future projects.
