The Coorong Healthy Highways initiative keeps adding silverware to the trophy cabinet, this time taking out the Flinders Foundation Leadership and Innovation in Health gong at the 2018 Community Achievement Awards.

The South Australian Community Achievement Awards recognise, encourage and reward achievements of programs, communities, individuals and business's that have a positive effect on their community.

The Healthy Highways program, an initiative of the Coorong District Council, encourages food vendors along the Coorong’s major highways to provide healthy alternatives to the standard truck stop fried menu. The award also came with a $2000 prize.
