Why ‘The Food Project?’
In addition to its foundation arm, which serves as a platform for real life hospitality training for students at Newman College, The Food Project also operates as a social enterprise café focused on raising funds to support a cause nominated by students each year. (The Student Representative Council are working towards this decision at this moment)
The Food Project is aiming to utilize all faculties of Newman College, for example the Furniture department has already contributed cabinetry, tabletops and various timber service items, Engineering has worked on outdoor tables and signage and our Art department has screen-printed the kitchen staff t-shirts.
The Food Project’s potential is evolving and open to suggestions.
Put simply, you can enjoy Good Food and help us contribute towards a Great Cause. In our initial stage of evolution – 10% of all purchases made through the food project will go towards a Great Cause.
What’s the cause?
Well that is the question put to students and is currently being decided upon – stay tuned!
The cause is twofold – students get real skills and contribute to a worthwhile project
If you would like to donate beyond the 10% of your purchase please feel free place your contribution in the donation box at the counter or can direct debit your nominated donation.
Thank you for supporting and embracing this exciting new adventure.
