The program employs those with lived experience of food relief programs and hardship to gain skills, knowledge and long-term career pathways while cooking the thousands of meals donated back to their communities, friends and families.
The course is as much about employment in a commercial kitchen, as it is breaking the cycle and life ready skills for those from disadvantage as they learn financial literacy, the full-circle nature of food and other invaluable lessons throughout the course.
Ability Social is a 6-month industry-led practical and paid course, developed by some of Sydney’s leading chefs & restauranteurs designed to up-skill individuals who have been excluded from the job market and building community role models.
Working directly with the PlateitForward Founders and a dedicated Head Chef. Ability Social takes a long-term view on community issues designed to facilitate knowledge transfer from hospitality experts back to communities.
