Food Vendors and Market Stalls that are selling food items, The Festival for a number of years now has been working in partnership with Healthway and the Western Australian School Canteen Association Inc. (WASCA) to provide and promote healthy food and drinks at the Festival.
As part of Healthways sponsorship funding, it is a requirement that vendors offer at least one healthy green food option.
The Fact sheets list ideas for food vendors and explain how WASCA can support you to offer healthy food options.
Additionally, as part of Healthway sponsorship funding, it is a requirement that vendors remove sugary drinks from the display. The fact sheet attached shows examples of drinks suitable to display; drinks that must be removed from the display; and simple strategies for vendors to achieve compliance.
If you apply to attend the Festival we will be forwarding your menu to WASCA for assessment and the Festival Committee looks forward to working with you to provide healthy food options at our Festival.
