The #HKAEXPO went off with a bang yesterday! More than 400 attendees came long to see products and services from more than 30 stalls. Plus, we ran 5 educational seminars and 3 cooking demos along with 3 Pop-Up Demos that were a big hit. If you were there,we hope you enjoyed it! If not, here’s a run down of some of the things you missed:

Fresh Tastes Explained & Q&A: One of our dietitians went through this healthy canteen policy and answered questions. Here is the Fresh Tastes Handout that was distributed at the talk.

Attracting & Retaining Volunteers: A huge thank you to Lynne Dalton from Volunteering NSW who gave a talk on attracting and retaining volunteers in your canteen. It was a terrific talk with great advice. Sorry to those who missed it!

Here is link to a blog we’ve written on the same subject: Vounteers Blog.

Green Up Your Menu & Green Snacks that Sell: Thanks to canteen manager Cathy O’Connor, EXPO attendees learned how to make canteen menu items GREEN and make healthy snacks jump off the shelves. Here are the blog posts that contain the demonstrated recipes: Green up & Green snacks.

Catherine Saxelby’s Recipes from the EXPO: Quick, easy and affordable, Catherine gives a demonstration on how to cook healthy, versatile and lunch-box friendly meals. Access her recipes, here.
