Mai Wiru Regional Stores Council Aboriginal Corporation (Mai Wiru) is an unfunded, not-for-profit organisation which is registered as a charity by the ATO.
‘Mai Wiru’ means ‘good food’ in Pitjantjatjara, the language most commonly spoken by people on the APY Lands. The links between the provision of adequate supplies of food, and the health of Indigenous peoples in remote communities in Australia have been well documented.
Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of Indigenous communities by ensuring continuous access to nutritious and affordable food and essential items.
We serve our communities by:
- Operating healthy and sustainable remote community stores.
- Providing healthy & affordable food through a low or no markup policy on fresh fruit, vegetables, meat, and baby formulas.
- Sourcing experienced, honest and reliable people to manage remote community stores.
- Implementing nutrition, health & well-being policies and strategies which promote the benefits of healthy living and encourage healthier choices.
