The Melting Pot Café Project was initiated before COVID by Farhat Firdous, Kacie Duncan, and Elise Watson to support participants from the multicultural community to gain skills, training, experience, and employment in the hospitality industry. The project was resumed in February 2022 and gained lots of momentum! The main goal of the Melting Pot Café Project was to support people from the multicultural community to gain experience, accredited training and ultimately employment in the hospitality industry; to support the local multicultural community to share culture and food, with the potential to create jobs and change lives.
Secondary goals were to help participants: • Familiarise with Australian hospitality industry. • Understand Australian food business regulations. • Gain skills, knowledge, experience, and accredited training. • Create a network of support and opportunity. • Develop employability. • Build connections and a sense of belonging. • Share food and cultural stories. • Create hospitality businesses.
The Participants created a small cook book of their recipes of which we are proud to share
