B.DM.F College of Food
The Finale of the College of Food Program took place on Saturday 23rd September at the Birregurra Hall. The young people from Birregurra, Forrest and Deans Marsh covered the trestle tables with linen table cloths, the flowers were laid out, the finishing touches were made to the food, places were set, banners hung and menus displayed in preparation for 100 people to enjoy a high tea.
A young person from each of the townships greeted people on arrival. The sponsors were acknowledged, the community mentors and the Coordinators were celebrated. A representative from Give Where You Live attended. Their grant of $30,000 made the program possible. Each young person received a certificate and then it was time to enjoy the amazing food that the young people had prepared.
Many thanks to Katrine Juleff of the Pennyroyal Raspberry Farm for her hard work, knowledge and patience as the Deans Marsh Community Mentor. The young people told me they had a lot of fun, learnt a lot and some are wanting to work in hospitality in the future!
