Enterprising Communities, ‘Our Kitchen’
Our Kitchen is a social enterprise Take-Away café, providing healthy snacks, and light meals; catering to local organisations and businesses; and a retail line of jams and chutneys.
Our Kitchen participants are long term unemployed clients of the Jobs Victoria Work & Learning Centre and by completing the program obtain pathways to employment and education opportunities in hospitality.
Participants enrol for 2 days per week for the 16 week course. During this time they attend 40 hours (2.5 hours per week) of preaccredited training designed to develop employability skills; gain certificates in Food Safety Handling and Barista Basics and develop skills from work experience in cooking, baking, coffee making skills, cash handling and kitchen operations.
