With over 30 years’ experience, QAST is dedicated to the promotion and support of Queensland tuckshops and communities in their endeavours to offer nutritious, hygienic and economically viable food services.
When we work with a tuckshop, we often see the tuckshop go on to experience greater success.
Here are some of their success stories.
Beerwah State School
Beerwah State School recently hosted two Nutrition and Dietetics students from the University of the Sunshine Coast to undertake a project to communicate the Smart Choices Guidelines to parents and students, and explain why the school is updating the tuckshop menu to support students to make healthy choices. Here's what they did.
Yugumbir State School
Yugumbir State School convenor, Kim, brought with her a new energy and zest for making the tuckshop better. She made many changes and she made them fast, including getting the menu up to a 5-apple rating.
Loganholme State School
Thriving veggie gardens and a tuckshop menu that is delicious … and healthy, are just two of the exciting milestones achieved at Loganholme State School, one year after they adopted Life Ed Queensland’s Healthy Eats program.
Oakleigh State School
QAST worked with Oakleigh State school to undergo a mini marketing makeover in their tuckshop to promote the sale of GREEN menu items. Here's how things improved afterwards.
Craigslea State High School
In 2022 we touched base with one of the Tuckshop Turnaround project’s success stories, Craigslea State High School, to see how they were performing two years later.
