Cooking

St Hilarion's aim is to provide employment opportunities for both the unemployed and migrant groups

Project details

Budget

$93,012.00

How will the funding be spent?

The funding will assist with the establishment of a community kitchen and a food van whereby volunteers can learn to refine their cooking skills and assist with the delivery of meals to the elderly and financially disadvantaged groups in the community. It will become a point of reference for both newly arrived migrants and the long term unemployed to learn new skills that will enhance both their employability and connectedness to Australian Society.

How will the project be delivered?

St Hilarion is in partnership with both Federation University and ARA jobs, a South Australian Job Services provider. We have identified that they are able to accommodate 20 students within a 12 week Certificate 3 qualification. Our current volunteers will provide training support in collaboration with Federation University on a daily basis. If the pilot project is successful, the program will be a feeder system for other business arms within St Hilarion and shared amongst other providers.

How many people will directly benefit from this project?

In the short term, it is anticipated that over a 1000 people will benefit from this as it will connect St Hilarion’s existing 600 volunteers with participants involved in the training program. As a result of this collaboration, meals created will be delivered to various homes within the metropolitan Adelaide region at a minimal cost. In some instances, a fee waiver will be applied for financially disadvantaged groups. In the long term, the numbers would be significantly greater if it is blueprint adopted by other South Australian providers.

How will you measure the impact of this project?

It is essential with any pilot project to have accurate data to support the efficacy and validity of both the purpose of the study and whether or not the appropriate milestones have been achieved. This can be recorded by utilising the following methods:
1. Participants will be encouraged to complete surveys at relevant stages of the project for evaluation.
2. Verbal feedback in the form of testimonials.
3. Images may be taken as needed to support/ negate the process
4. Measure the number of participants who have both completed the hospitality training program and gained employment.
5. Measure both the number and satisfaction levels of consumers who have utilised the meals services.

It will be projects such as this that will be crucial in helping to deal with the upward spiralling numbers of long term unemployed, new arrivals and elderly people who desperately need support. As we often hear how more and more of these disadvantaged groups are becoming lost in the system, initiatives such as this project must be given approval to reach out to these people and show that there are those who care.

This is a great initiative, which has multi faceted benefits to a whole range of people. Its really important to give opportunities to the unemployed which can then give them the skills to find work. The elderly will benefit as many older peoples greatest wish is to remain at home, but shopping and meal preparation can become difficult due to poor health, mobility or transport problems. Good nutritious food which is also prepared to meet their cultural needs is important for good health and maintaining independence.

What a wonderful initiative. We may all end up in an Aged care facility as we live longer. I think we would agree that we would like to receive the BEST possible care. The correct level of care comes from well trained people who will give service to our loved ones and ourselves when the need arises. This Project is innovative and one that others will be looking to emulate. I encourage you to share this with others so they too can pledge their support.

This target group is our communities most vulnerable and need all the assistance that they can receive. But appropriate and better defined training is what is needed in the market place to raise standards. I believe from what research I have done on this course and company that this is the direction to go in and the company to support.

What a great idea connecting volunteers to frail or vulnerable members of our communities. It will no doubt promote less social isolation and improve health outcomes with tasty, healthy and highly nutritious meals. Also a great way to partner volunteers who are typically older, with students who will receive invaluable life long training and qualifications. A 'win win' for all members of the community.

This is a great idea not only does it encompass some of the most marginalised groups but it also assists and enhances ties with the elderly which are often lonely.

From personal experience, I know that Saint Hilarion will undertake this fantastic program with the right attitude, compassion, knowledge and skills, and supported by the wider community. Any program that gives to the disadvantaged, whilst teaching new skills and supporting people into employment is invaluable to opening up opportunities for all involved in creating a better life for many.
