Supporting Indigenous Communities

Mai Wiru (May We-Roo) translates to ‘Healthy Food’ in Pit­jan­t­jat­jara, the lan­guage most com­mon­ly spo­ken by peo­ple on the APY Lands.

As an unfunded not-for-profit Indigenous Organisation, Mai Wiru supports communities through a number of its projects and delivers a variety of services across its portfolio. At its foundation, it was established with a goal to improve the health and wellbeing of Indigenous people living on the APY Lands, by ensuring continuous access to nutritious food and essential items, at affordable prices.

About Us

‘Mai Wiru’ is not just about healthy stores, it is a positive movement for Indigenous families to live, eat, and teach their future generations on how to have a healthy community.

Through consultation, monitoring, and new initiatives, Mai Wiru has been instrumental in bridging the ongoing issues of food security on the APY Lands and the broader remote Indigenous communities. There has been a significant improvement in food security, the range and quality of fresh fruit and vegetables, and healthy alternatives in community stores since its inception circa 1990’s.
