In 2017 we also partnered with the New England Community College to host the placement portion of the Certificate II in Hospitality course.
Our chef worked with this group of students to meet their practical learning outcomes.

From 2015-2017 we provided an outlet for the collection of donated food items through the REAP by OzHarvest Program. This program allows members of the community to access food that they would otherwise not be able to afford, which had been donated from supermarkets or shops in Armidale.
Since 2017, as one of the organisations helping to provide food relief in Armidale, we work with other groups supporting vulnerable community members by making available any un-used produce or meals that can be utilised by the Armidale Neigbourhood Centre, Armidale Community CareVan, Freeman House and the Armidale Youth or Women’s Refuges. Similarly, we receive donated produce from a variety of sources, including some very generous gardeners around the area who are happy to share the spoils of their gardening labour.
