Our Mission / Objective

Our Vision is that children form positive food habits for life. Our Mission is to provide the inspiration, information, training and support for educational institutions to deliver pleasurable food education, in conjunction with educators, partners and the wider community.



The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation aims to positively influence the eating habits of children, for life, in an effort to address the increasing crisis of childhood obesity (currently one in four Australian children). The Foundation believes that a positive intervention of pleasurable food education in an educational setting is crucial within any obesity-prevention framework, and provides the means of delivering pleasurable food education to children through the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program. 


Our Services

The SAKGF trains educators, both face to face and through online forums, to deliver pleasurable food education to children across Australia.  Educators are further supported by a suite of curriculum resources designed to meet the learning outcomes of the Australian Curriculum, in addition to a dedicated Support Line 13000 SAKGF.


Projects in Progress


  • In the Kitchen Garden Program, schools run structured, regular garden and kitchen classes in gardens on school grounds that are designed and maintained by the students, and home-style school kitchens that are often refitted or multi-purpose rooms. This skills-based, sensory learning provides students with understanding and experience in growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, delicious food at school, building positive food habits for life. This real-life learning is integrated across the entire school curriculum and culture, reinforcing academic studies and achieving learning outcomes across the Australian Curriculum.

  • The Foundation supports and inspires the 800+ Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program schools to deliver the Kitchen Garden Program.

  • We continuously develop our food education knowledge, training and educational resources, in order to empower more communities to embrace pleasurable food education.

  • We provide access to the kitchen garden online community, educational resources, professional development and Foundation support to any early learning, primary or secondary school and other interested parties – known as the Kitchen Garden Classroom.

  • We strive to see pleasurable food education mandated in all Australian schools with a primary curriculum.
